Hello all, You just got one more fan from Finland due yesterday's trades... For Tuomo, you already saw how he is like on ice, and lot of other guys have given quite correct evaluations of him. In Finland he was quite popular when he left to NA, but I think hype has come a bit down after his first season due his injuries... I think now we (Ruutu fans) are just waiting for him to finally get back to the stage and evolve into a player he is supposed to be. Chicago was not a correct place for him.
I hope in Carolina he will be given some offensive role as well, and not just be put checking in 4th line. Of course I also hope he will have a good future in there.
