Jarkko Ruutu Understands It Is A Business

from Dave Molinari of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,

Ruutu reiterated his desire to remain with the Penguins—“Pittsburgh is a great team and, hopefully, we can work something out”—and said that the Malone-Roberts trade did nothing to change that.

“It’s part of the business,” Ruutu said. “Every team, it happens.”

Ruutu, who made $1.15 million in each of the past two seasons, is one of hockey’s top antagonists and bolstered his bargaining leverage by playing well in the stretch drive and playoffs.

Even if the sides agree on money, the length of a deal could be a point of contention for him.
