According to Eklund(I know, not a great source)...

Rutherford is working on an extension for Ruutu, if he is in fact off the market that should help the Hbas get top dollar for AK46.

Plenty of teams way ahead of the habs in the rankings without a frontline goalie

According to you your boy is a frontline goalie and still the habs are 1 point away from the 15th spot

So let's build a team he can win with instead of shipping him out of town.

I guess because Carolina is right there with us Staal must suck as a #1 center by your definition...

With Ruutu off the market, the value of Kostitsyn just went up. Just needs to see if GMs are willing to pay that premium.

Ruutu extended 4 years at 4.75/year total 19 mil

Makes the Cole deal look like a steal.

What the ****, the quote still doesn't work.

Obvious? Hmm, did you know that he was in the rumors during last week?

He is a serviable player for the canes.

It is safer to say that Tuomo would be re-signed than traded


If he called that Ruutuu would be traded, then yes I would be impressed.

Why havent he called the Downie trade?
Its a surprising trade.

Ruutu isn't worth 4.5m imo. I have no idea what Rutheford is building but it looks stupid.

It's actually 4.750

He is at max 4 million but I guess you don't have much choice in Carolina, you have to overpay. Leino is making more or less the same, i'd rather have Ruutu so 50/50 about this one

Not surprised and not the 1st time he has been this year. He was slowing down since last year, it was a good riddance

Come on, AK and Ruutu are miles apart. Ruutu is a grinder with limited talent, while AK is a gifted player who plays 1 game out of 2.

GMs tend to favor the former type player. AK will either explose Kovalev style in 2 years or play in the KHL... I'm more inclined to think he'll be in the KHL like Zherdev.

I'd take Ruutu at 4.75M$ over Bourque at 3.3M$.

Ruutu is at least physical and a disturbing presence around the crease, on top of being a reliable player on D.

Then you should probably stay the hell away from GMing any team of mine.

Ruutu is an inconsistent grinder who got 4.75m and a NTC. Never worth it.

C'mon that's ridiculous. Ruutu is on par with AK talent-wise, and has outperformed him point-wise for most of their respective careers. Is Ruutu worth that much. I don't think so. But to say they are miles apart talent wise is a pretty strange thing to say.

Not worth it, but Bourque's even worst. I'd take Ruutu 10 times out of 10, even with 1.4M$ more on the cap.

I think the team that finishes in 8th place will have around 84-85 pts...

Washington losing (1-0 so far) once again.

It's got to hurt worse for them than it does for us. That team was supposed to be a contender.

I don't blame Dale Hunter (that team was a mess when he got there), but it does tell you something about a team hero and proven CHL coach making the transition to NHL head coach...
