If I'm giving up a significant asset regardless, I'd rather have a guy who will be a factor for the next 4 or 5 years, not a rental. It's better to stand pat than overpay for a Kubina or Allen type guy.

As far as Ruuttu, I think that Carolina is demanding a premium for it's guys. They supposedly wanted a 1st for Gleason or Allen, I can only imagine they'd want a lot for Ruuttu, too.
And that's exactly what I'm saying. Ideally we can go after guys like that, but if the price is too high then no. I like the idea of Rutuu on this team. Not at the expense of JvR.
