Jarkko Ruutu Traded to Ducks

The Ottawa Senators traded forward Jarkko Ruutu to the Anaheim Ducks for a 2011 6th round draft pick Thursday evening.  The pick was originally Phoenix’s.  Francis Lessard has been called up and will join the Senators Friday morning.

My take:  Some people may feel they should’ve got more for Jarkko Ruutu, but after seeing Paul Mara dealt for a 5th round pick, this seems about right.  Ruutu had been in the doghouse with Clouston, being a healthy scratch numerous times and it was only a matter of time before he was sent elsewhere.  Another asset acquired for a player that wasn’t in the plans for the team next season.
