On rumour saying that Sens targeting Ruutu of Hurricanes

I am hoping this does not happen for real. Ruutu is 28yrs old and have been involved in NHL playoff games in only one year. In that year, he was 25 yrs old and produce 1 goal and 3assists in 16 games.. Although some may say it is because he was on rebuliding Hawks at early part of his career. But, carolina was not a rebuilding team during his tenure. They were experienced team that had many players from 06 cup winning team. Plus, this guy will be UFA at the end of this season and very well likely demand more than what other available power forwards like Malone or Penner will get paid over next 3 years. Not to mention that cost to aquire him would be higher than whatever we have to pays to get either Malone or Penner. As I stated previously, value of power forwards has been significantly raised ever since ducks won the cup in 07 with likes of Corey Perry, Dustin Penner, and Ryan Getzlaf. Bruins win over Canucks last year only help the cause more. So, if you are to pay the price, and unless it is for Bobboy Ryan, Sens should look at relatively cheaper and more proven at the playoff level type player. Also, I believe Foligno is Ruutu in making with arguably with more upside. But we can all agree that Foligno will never have size of Malone or Penner with skill. It seems like Ruutu has better offensive touch than Malone but, he has not shown his touch at the playoff level and with likes of what senators have this year, I do not believe he will perform much better than what he did in 09'playoff. Whatever move senators will make this trade deadline should not only target this year playoff but for future as well.
