    Default Tuomo Ruutu Out "Months"

    Chip Alexander ‏@ice_chip

    GM Jim Rutherford says Tuomo Ruutu has had hip surgery. Said recovery time, return is indefinite but would be matter of months.


    You deep leaguers out there, take notice.

    Deep leagues or multi-cat pools. Ruutu was a beast in any league that had hits.

    In any case, this is also a huge blow to the Hurricanes' hopes of contending this year.

    "Rutherford on Ruutu: "We're not sure how long he will be out. Certainly through the regular season, if we play it. Maybe longer." #Canes"

    When I replied to Chris Nichols tweet re: Ruutu I asked him when the surgery took place. He replied and said "recently in Colorado".

    Not good if you own Ruutu.

    This year? No agreement yet as far as I know.

    Bowman, Boychuk or Dalpe could step in and make their mark in his absence.

    If I have to qualify every single statement I make regarding the impact of something by first stating "if there's a season" then I'm going to go ballistic. Call it laziness, call it optimism, call it whatever you want, I'm pressing forward as though there will be a season until they tell me otherwise.

    Fair enough. I just find it hard to be optimistic with this bunch and will wait until t's are crossed and i's are dotted.

    But you are optimistic enough to have interest in a Tuomo Ruutu injury.

    I'd like to correct my statement. Don't call it optimism because it isn't that. I just don't want to have to qualify every single statement with an "if there's a season" that should be implied since that's obviously the case.

    If you're saying 'when' instead of 'if', then you are optimistic and there is nothing wrong with that. I just do not trust this bunch and I still think its 50/50 as to whether there will be a season.
    Most reporters are also saying there is going to be a season. I hope they're right, but I will wait until its a done deal before I show any optimism.

    Either way, we're hoping for the best.
