Rita for some reasoner....ok, just trying to be funny,is not at the level of progress i believe everyone thought he would be (let's, as a Hawk fan,hope Ruutu doesn't suffer the same curve) but I believe a move to CHI and to link up with his fellow country man would be very good for him.
Next, Hagman on LW would be another acquisition M Smith should look at even though Niklas hasn't and might ever show much finish....
country man? Yes they are both fins but Oilers constantly draft Fins when we see players of relatively equal value and can't decide who to pick the Oil usually go:
Edmonton>Alberta>Western Canada >Finns>Eastern Canada>everyone else . Many hockey teams have tendancys to draft certain ethinicitys of people when presented with equal choices for example Edmonton=Finland Toronto=Sweden Chicago=Russians
