What about Foligno? Ottawa seems to love the kid, but you have to give to get.

That probably won't happen, though. I think it's more likely Jarkko winds up in Carolina than Tuomo winding up in Ottawa.

What do you think the value of Jarkko to Carolina is?
The value of Jarkko to Carolina is likely nothing. He's making $1.3M/yr for the next two years and would be on the fourth line, so unless the Senators want one of the beautiful contracts of Kaberle/Wallin/Walker (or Brind'amour! ) there's nothing that would work salary-wise.

A number of people on the 'Canes board wanted to sign Jarkko last offseason and unite the brothers. Of course, $1.3M/yr is way too steep for a good hockey player so we signed Brookbank/Conboy/Melichar to one-way deals worth a combined $2M.

Volchenkov for Ruutu?

I'll pass thanks, Volchenkov is one of the most underrated defenceman in the NHL
