Ruutu can score as much as Wolski, but he's a better skater, he's very physical, and he works hard. Basically the opposite. Worth his cap number.
Wolski + Zuccarello + 2nd
They get two young players that need. One that needs a chance in the NHL. One that has no spot in the lineup here. And a high draft pick (2nd round pick is a high pick).
Makes the team that much deeper, that much tougher, that much harder to play against.
Sooner the better, I'd like to give Ruutu some time to gel with the TEAM before the playoff push. I've seen to many deadline deals prove fruitless due to lack of chemistry. Just saying....Good example being Neal to Pitts last year, looked horrible after the deal, give him some time and now he's comfortable and rolling.
