It does seem like Lou likes to collect underachieving first rounders. Maybe he thinks he can fix them.

Lou hasn't been in enough failed relationships. You have to love someone for who they are and not try to change them.

If you redraft the 2001 1st round right now, Tuomo Ruutu is still one of the top players picked.  I'd say he's had the 8th best career of any 1st round pick from 2001.

 

This point really isn't about Ruutu - it's about expectations for 1st round picks.  Some of them go on to be superstars, but a lot of them go on to be players like Ruutu - a sometimes above average winger who's had some nice years, some not so nice ones.
