Bob McKenzie names the Kings, along with five other clubs, as having interest in Tuomo Ruutu.
General manager Jim Rutherford has been talking to teams about Ruutu (who is an unrestricted free agent this summer) and the asking price has been steep - a significant draft pick and a solid prospect or a top prospect alone. Ruuttu has the ability to both score goals and play a physical game, so a lot of teams have interest - including the Vancouver Canucks, Los Angeles Kings, Chicago Blackhawks, Minnesota Wild and New York Rangers amongst others.

That significant pick is very likely a 1st round pick. As far as top prospects go, that would likely be a Jordan Weal or Tyler Toffoli, prospects the Kings shouldn't be giving up for rentals, unless the rental players name is Zach Parise.
