And I think Ruuttu would be a solid addition to our third / fourth lines and may make some players think twice about cheapshotting his little brother.

Im not sure I would make this deal but I think it is a good proposal.
How about you take Nathan Dempsey and throw us back a third round pick so Allen, Ruutu, & a 3rd for Dempsey and a 1st.
Good post as always, Behn.

Personally, I value Allen quite a bit, but with all our defensive depth coming up, I'm not sure where he fits in. Still, with the lack of defensive defensemen in the system, I'd rather keep him for at least one more season.

Also, as for Ruutu, he's not as replacable as Canuck fans seem to think on this team.

I personally don't think I'd make the deal you proposed, but I would likely move Allen & Ruutu for the 1st alone, but I certainly would not add any more for it. Dempsey would be ridiculously low down on our depth chart (no offense). We already have Nolan Baumgartner anyways
