No. He's a part of the core and will not be available unless you really overpay. Send us Crosby or Malkin, he's yours. But short of a huge overpayment, he's staying here.

I can think of a few other things that would get Ruu moved to the Canes, but none they would want to pay.

i dont agree with these guys. i think he is available for a standard price of whatever a guy like ruutu at his age would bring. i think if we could package him with something else to get a core player of higher status we would in a heartbeat. there was an "untouchable" list floated around here recently, but that wasnt from management as much as a media guess list. ward/staal/sutter are the only true untouchables. the interview i heard from jr said as much, and he himself mentioned gretzky getting traded - but i think the afore mentioned three are safe.

you would never create a package to offer us that would get him back your way. not this year. we tend to overate the players we have who play to or above expectation. if the canes could package him for marc or jordan staal - theyd do it tomorrow.

You're contradicting yourself. The "bleedgreen available list" and the actual "Canes available list" might differ here.

what i was saying is, no team could put a package of crap to equal ruutu and land him. he would, imo, be available if he was packaged for an upgrade player. as in ruutu plus whatever it took for j staal. that could happen from our end. expendable player plus 3rd round pick in 2012 plus soon to be ufa isnt gonna do it. to me the standard price of a 26 year old as good as ruutu is a steep price.

rutherford was asked straight up in an interview about "untouchables", and the only names he said were staal and ward, and he said those begrudgingly. he would trade ruutu in a heartbeat for certain guys. i dont buy any of those lists the media put out. just guesses. gleason would go too under the same circumstances.

I believe the word we're looking for here is:

NO.

I agree with what you are saying. JR isn't looking to trade Ruutu so any deal would have to be an overpayment..or depending on the player coming back, at least slanted in favor of the Canes...but he isn't "untouchable" IMO.

Your Jordan Staal example is a good one.

I just don't see him being moved anytime soon though because other teams wouldn't be willing to give up what it would takes.

I believe Ruutu is one of the core players ie:

Ward, Staal, Sutter,Gleason, & Ruutu, that is on a short list of untouchables. And like someone said, if you overpay, then anything is possible.
