And doesn't Carolina need Ruutu a bit more now that Cole is gone? Or will an impact kid replace him?

I'm assuming Ruutu wants an even bigger deal than Cole when he's a UFA, hence the potential for movement there. But that's just an assumption.

Meanwhile, the Canucks may miss Ballard now that Ehrhoff is gone. Can't rely on Salo for a full season these days. (or ever)

Eklund is always vague, but sometimes he nails it. In the meantime, another Canadian hockey market gets something to blabber about during the dog days of summer.
How do you get "star player" out of Keith Balllard????????????????
