A gritty two-way forward, Ruutu is one of my favorite players in the league.  He's a bit of a throwback.  He's a pest for sure, and is versatile, lining up at all three forward positions.  He ranks among the league leaders in hits, and is always good for about 50 point per year.  In fact, he is currently second in the NHL in hits, trailing only the Wild's Cal Clutterbuck.  However, Ruutu has 18 more points.  And as you may know, I love those Finns!
