You get hurt once and get the "injury prone" tag on this board for life.

The Hurricanes can take Ruutu to arbitration. There is no way that his 32 point season will get him $3M. I haven't seen anything that indicates he's asking for that much anyways.

Ruutu scored more points-per-game with the Hurricanes than Ladd did with the Blackhawks. He's also a better defensive player and more physical, while being a natural center (Brind'amour and Cullen are coming off of serious injuries). Yet the trade is bad because...Ruutu will make a bit more money? Okay.

Glad I'm not a Cane fan.

Anything less than $2 million/year for Ladd is a bargain, especially with a $56MM cap.
Don't forget other hot, shiny prospects such as Igor Knyazev, David Tanabe and Danny Richmond, who have all gone to have illustrious careers on the waiver wire. We all know draft position is the ultimate key to evaluating a trade, not actual player performance.

OMG Blackhawks traded Tuomo Ruutu and Anton Babchuk! They are doomed!

Yeah, I mean god knows it sucks having won a cup in the past 47 years and all. I mean who the hell would want a cup when you could have all these great prospects. We all know the team with the best prospect pool according to HF wins, actual results be damned.

I don't think he will hit 60 points anytime soon. He scored 30 in 63 last year and really started coming into his own.

That said, he will probably be a 3rd liner for us next year, so I don't see him getting enough ice time to top 40 points. 40 points would be awesome for a 3rd line $1.55mil guy.

Wow, little pissy are we? Woosaa.. Talk about blowing **** out of nothing. Not to mention i didnt say **** about Ruutu's contract or anything; so i hope thats in regard to someone else. All i said about Ruutu was in regard to his health.

Ruutu has had more than just 1 injury in his short career. He had knee surgery before he came to the NHL and has never had NHL caliber speed because of it.

I loved the guy in his first season with the Hawks, after that he just lost interest in everything other than his contracts.

********. Ruutu definitely was never the same player he was his rookie season, but it was never due to lack of effort. His body doesn't allow him to be the checking line player he wants to be and his offensive skills just didn't translate here last year. Ruutu played hard for Chicago, and the only disapointment I have with him is in what could've been. Contracts with him usually are a pain in the rear, but once he put pen to paper, he was nothing but effort. It's very unfair to paint him off as a Yashin clone.

Ruutu lost the majority if not the whole lock out season due to a back injury. He has only really had 1 serious injury while in the NHL.

To me he showed next to zero effort last season. Especially when he played with Toews and Kane, its like he was playing hot potato with the puck. He was afraid to go in corners, afraid to shoot, afraid to make a play. 9 times out of 10 Ruutu had the biscuit last season with us he would dump the puck and get off the ice. It was pathetic and I was very happy to see him leave.
