Bob McKenzie names the Kings, along with five other clubs, as having interest in Tuomo Ruutu.
Quote:
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.
