I don't think we would be, not unless we had a 3 million per-ish salary that we had to offload. Ruutu's contract is bad but he's still a better player then Burmistrov who looks like he's a #3 guy long term. Cheaper to do stop-gap for a year or go with Rask, Nash, or Welsh. Might not be as good next year (unless we sign career ECHLer Matt Cullen on a cheap one-year) but we won't lose assets and it's probably the better option long-term if Rask shows he can hack it or Nash/Welsh show some improvement.
