Rutherford means business this year. Southeast is going to be interesting that's for sure.

If he was willing to accept a one year contract I'm sure he had other suitors.

Honestly wouldn't be surprised if it A - had to do with immediate top line opening, and B - had to do with sticking it to the Caps

Anyone wanna guess at some projected lines for the canes?
Semin - Eric - Ruutu
Skinner - Jordan - Jokinen
Tlusty - Welsh - LaRose
Nodl - Brent - Dwyer

sexy top 6, 3rd line has potential, and good role players for a 4th line.
