Garth Snow is hysterical.  He must have taken a few pucks too hard to the head.

Carolina retained some salary.  So that's good news.

The good news?  Ruutu is in the top 20 in the NHL in hits.

 

The bad news?  We got a $5 million version of Steve Bernier.

Can Ruutu fight? I have long suspected that Steve Bernier is in fact a giant bitch when it comes to fighting. I dare someone to prove me wrong. Bernier hits but he isn't truly physical he's to much of a pansy.

Knowing Lou, it's 15 cents of the $4.75 million.

DeBoer's excited. None of Pete's Pets got moved, and he got another plumber-type he can over-use. He must be dancing a jig. The best thing about today is that we didn't claim Gomez.

Big friggen deal.  It's kinda easy to waive your NTC when you realize the team you play for doesn't want you...

His sh% and on ice sh% of around 6% lends himself to a bounce back with a new team. He was very effective for Finland at the Olympics.

That's going too far.  Bernier isn't quite as effective physically nor does he have the offensive talent (and SO talent) of Ruutu.  Plus we're not paying $5 million for him.  Maybe $4 or less, depending on retained salary.

Yeah well Teemu didn't waive his NTC to come here when we were a Cup team.  And it took Langs half a season to waive his.

-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

Bernier is a Ruutu-Lite.  Ruutu isn't making $5m either.

This doesn't fill me with a ton of confidence.  doesn't appear to be a guy who really pushes the play forward (as opposed to an alexei ponikarovsky, say, whose impact is pretty clear)

Jeez, take it down a notch. I was attempting to post something positive in between all the doom and gloom.

More hits=more gooder.  Any word on how much salary Carolina retained?

 

Edit: I was not expecting Brodeur to be moved or anyone of value to be traded for. I do anticipate a bit more action from Lou during the summer. Time will tell...

Um, yes he is.

The deal will pay Ruutu $4 million in 2012-13, and $5 million per season in the 2013-14, 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons.

How anyone can properly judge this deal without knowing:

 

A) How much Carolina retained

 

B) What the condition of the pick is

 

is pretty absurd

Facts you can't make up:

 

In 16 career playoff games, Ruutu has one goal:  2009 Game 7 vs. the Devils (one of the worst gut-punch losses in Devils' history).
