Tuomo Ruutu would be a good addition at or before the deadline if the Canes are out of it. Replacing McGinn with him on the third line would be a huge boost and he's more than capable of top six minutes as an injury replacement. Maybe the third time's the charm between DW and Rutherford?
Vermette's contract is a joke for the value he provides. I wouldn't want any part of that.
Tuomo Ruutu would be expensive to get from Carolina. A 1st round pick + a decent younger player going back.
