Yeah, many people have known this while ago, although it's still just a rumor.

If Ruutu would sign with HIFK, what would be his role? Agitator like in NHL or a top line player?

Couple videos to remind people of Ruutu's hidden skills:

I would say both, though IFK's top six is quite full Jarkko still has talent enough to be sort of scoring threat in SM-Liiga level... though he will probably play in 3rd line with Wirtanen and be the team's top penalty killer. And I wouldn't be surprised if he plays in the 2nd line...

OK, that's kinda what I thought too. HIFK will again be tough to beat next season, despite the loss of Petrell...

Aki Berg retires http://www.mtv3.fi/urheilu/jaakiekko...uu-lopettamaan

So, maybe TPS will sign a decent defenseman now?

One more quality center and that would be about it.
*Random rumors (+ has played with Smolenak in the AHL)

http://video.lightning.nhl.com/video...73898&fr=false

Would be a "holy crap!"-signing for Ässät. 25 years old and has solid numbers in the AHL and many games in the NHL. Had some kind of knee injury in April and is likely the only reason Ässät is even in the rumors to be the team for this guy. Talk is that on Monday we will know more about the situation.

If he comes to Ässät, who knows.

Szczechura would be younger, bigger and would have more NHL-experience though.

Oh, there's another Jared Ross... thought he was the guy who played in Chicago Wolves last season, and has a contract with ERC Ingolstadt.

The latest I heard of J. Ruutu was that he was rumored to sign with Jokerit. Can't remember who tweeted it.

Didn't Kekäläinen deny that rumor? He only said that J.Ruutu would be on upgrade to any team in FEL.

It'd be nice to have him here in HIFK, but my life wouldn't be over if he chose Vantaa. I highly doubt he goes to Jokerit tho.


I'd be absolutely pissed.

From @tomppaaax:

And Jarkko Ruutu wants to work in team management after his career is over, which is why he prefers Jokerit over HIFK. #veikkaaja

Why would he choose Kiekko-Vantaa?

Now there's a solid rumour that Ruutu has signed 2+2 year contract + a job at the Jokerit office after retirement (something HIFK wasnt ready to offer?). Anyway, all the signs are indicating to Jokerit.

Which is nice.

Nah, i meant Vantaan Jokerit but anyways.

He can be sure he'll be hated for the rest of his life here in Stadi if he signs with the clowns. Imagine if Selänne signed with I.F.K, you'd be pretty pissed. That's how i fell right now.

I hope we use the money we save from not signing him wisely. Someone similar to him, but with better offensive upside.
