Well at least the pick dealt is in 2017, and hopefully Carolina is picking up half the salary, but otherwise this is just not good - Ruutu doesn't do much to help out.

Lateral move at best.

 

Another slow forward to help grind people into the ice.  Bleh.

Here we go again - tapping Carolina for a mucker.  First, Ponikarovsky, and now Ruutu?  WTF?

 

If this goes anything like the Ponikarovsky trade did, then you should be kissing Lou's feet.

Lou is a brutal GM anymore. This team is not built to win in the NHL.

Clowe and Ruutu at almost 5m each!!!!!

Just so awful. So freaking awful.

The other thing that's annoying is that with Loktionov gone, and Ruutu a winger, it means Henrique back to center, which doesn't make any goddamn sense given how well he's played the last few games.

The Devils are too soft right now.  Ruutu helps the lack of physical game we have.  Ruutu is a good pickup imo.

Trade away the one guy who has been busting his ass and skating well of late. For what? Lou is definitely senile

This is a big "so what" deal, other than I don't like adding that much salary.

According to capgeek we still have 3.5 in cap space after this deal. Lou might not be done yet. Moulson and Cammy are still out there.

Totally agree. I knew you and I would both hate this move.

Unless Lou is unloading Salvador or Volchenkov somehow, this is awful.

How do you know this?  There's plenty of ways to keep Henrique on a line with Elias and Brunner while having Ruutu play LW.

This one looks pretty weak on the surface.  And below the surface.  And above.  Carolina could probably care less about Loki and the 2017 conditional pick...they're probably just thrilled to get out from under Ruutu's contract.  Can't wait to hear how Lou explains this one.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.

I like Ruutu and feel he is an upgrade over Loktionov who has shown flashes but not been consistently great. Surprised we have the salary room for this.
