Tuomo Ruutu Not Going Anywhere

(2/23/12) Talk about raining on our parade... The Hurricanes ruined everyone's fun by signing Tuomo Ruutu to a four-year, $19 million extension Wednesday, quashing all hope of a deadline trade.   We had visions of big production for Ruutu in another uniform, but alas, it's not to be...

For now, Ruutu remains out with an upper-body injury and is expected to miss another couple of weeks.  He'll be back in his familiar Hurricanes jersey near the beginning of March.
