Possible Options:
Jonathan Cheechoo - risky Yes, but would be very cheap.

Patrick O'sullivan - he's only been with the team once

Andrew Brunette - Best option in my mind. Physically not an even trade-off, but offensively just as capable as Ruutu.
Pass on all of them. We need a physical presence. Jason Arnott fits, in that he's a big body, and that way he can be 3rd line center and we don't have to force anyone into playing center. Godard fits for cheap, Darche fits for cheap, we desperately need someone to hit people. JStaal's our most physical forward right now...
