Andrew Ladd

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the correction...Eh it's a toss up for me personally then.

I like Ruutu as much as I liked Ladd.

On the Chicago boards they have a thread claiming that they fleeced us on this trade.

Andrew spent to much time on the 3rd and 4th line and played a 3rd and 4th liners role when hes a 1st and 2nd line player.

he was never going to get a shot at the 2nd line until we decided we needed D. personally, I dont think anyone got fleeced I think we dealt two players who do the exact same thing but both needed a change of scenary.

i think ruutu's a more exciting player with his faster more physical style of play but still like Ladd and i look at Chicago's scores all the time to see if he's scored and i'm glad to see he's doing well

The trade was a wash, I think. Ladd wasn't getting it done in Carolina and Ruutu wasn't getting it done in Chicago. They both seem to be thriving on their new teams. I think Ruutu has a lot more untapped potential than Ladd, though he may not ever live up to it.

Player GP G A P +/- PIM PP SH GW S S%

Andrew Ladd 12 3 2 5 2 8 0 0 0 23 13.0

Tuomo Ruutu 9 4 4 8 2 17 2 0 1 15 26.7

I would not call it a wash. However, stats with this few games are pretty meaningless.

We will see how it goes.

I think Ruutu brings what we need. He can deliver the big hit and get under opposing players skin plus he can score. Ladd is a good player and I wish him well. I always look for him in the Chicago highlights.

I think Ruutu is certainly doing better for us, then perhaps Ladd is doing in Chicago...

Since its kinda early in the season to tell this year, I would take a look at the stats from after the trade last year..

Ladd had 5g 7a 12P +4 4PIM 1PP and 55 SOG in 20 games with Chicago Ladd had 9 goals in 43 games with Carolina before the trade, so his point production stayed about the same.

Ruutu had 4g 7a 11P +1 16PIM 3PP and 29 SOG in in 17 games with Carolina.. He scored almost as many goals on less shots, way higher shot percentage, more powerplay points.. in less games.. He had only 6 goals in his 60 games with Chicago, so his points per game went WAY up in Carolina.

Still almost a wash though... Ruutu seemed to improve the most in new digs. Ruutu made an immediate impact for us.. I think he scored in his first game with us after being hustled from the airport and playing in Chicago the night before.

he didn't score but i think he had an assist. the big thing was his two big hits and the nasty high stick in his first game, i think he became an immediate fan favorite after that.
