Tuomo Ruutu Leaves with UBI

Standard Spin: Tuomo Ruutu left Monday's game after a hit from Tomas Plekanec and did not return.  The Hurricanes reported via twitter that Ruutu has an upper-body injury, although there is no word on the extent of any damage or the exact nature of the problem.  We have to wonder if this will affect Ruutu's status as a trade commodity, as his name has been one of the most mentioned in regards to players who may be moved prior to the deadline.   (2/14/12)
