In 5 games, Yakubov has shown more poise, vision, and passing skills than Ruutu has all season long. And Yakubov has been far more responsible than Ruutu defensively. So when Zhamnov comes back, unless Ruutu wants to keep playing on the checking line or winger, it would be best for him to go to Norfolk. Vorobiev is there, and when I look at Radulov and Yakubov now, I'm optimistic that when Vorobiev returns to the Hawks he'll be one heck of a player. I only wish that Ruutu would realize that.
