Teams interested in Tuomo Ruutu

Tuomo Ruutu's name has again surfaced as a trade target. Canes forward might draw some interest as teams approach the Olympic break.

These have to be teams looking ahead to reaching the cap floor next season.

Some salary retained and I hope Oilers will be bidding on him.

The only way I see a team wanting Ruutu is if they're sending an equally bad contract to Carolina.

Why would the Oilers add another winger?

yeah I'm as confused by anyone about this. Guess JR wants to take the fact that he's finally had a not-terrible month and might have found a taker?

Ruutu + Peters maybe?

Ruutu for Stafford is the only deal i could imagine.

Probably somethng with Columbus /Kekäläinen connection/ or with Edmonton.

I probably wouldn't be opposed to a Booth for Ruutu + draft pick swap, but the draft pick would probably need to be at least a 3rd round pick to interest the Canucks since Ruutu has a higher cap hit and is signed for one more year. His buyout in the off-season would cost the Canucks $3.5M more than a Booth buyout, more than double.

But then again there is the risk of Ruutu getting injured towards the end of the season preventing us from using a compliance buyout on him, meaning we're stuck with a $4.75M cap hit for two more seasons as opposed to only one more year of Booth.

Translation: I want to trade this player and I will make an obvious attempt to pretend other teams are interested in the hopes we find a sucker to trade for him.

These insiders work for the gm's, agents and etc.

Why?

I think the Oilers have much larger issues that don't require adding a 4.75M AAV third line winger.

That makes as much sense as detailing my truck while the house is burning down around me.

Dreger's not connected to JR though as far as I know. Bob MacKenzie, yes, but that's another matter entirely.

You don't have to be distant cousins to be connected, how would any of us know who's connected to who?

Tuomo Ruutu 4,75M cap hit, two years left including this season - 12 points in 40 games
Rene Bourque 3,33M cap hit, three years left including this season - 7 points in 34 games

Is a swap possible?

Booth for Ruutu is not possible. We prefer to keep Ruutu, at least he could bring some grit to the table.

I wonder the same thing. Maybe Habs would have to add a prospect or a pick? Btw, was Ruutu in the Hawks organization when Bergevin was there?
