Ruutu A Good Fit For Pens

from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette,
"He came here for the right reasons," Shero said. "He had other options. I don't think we were on his radar on Day 1 [of free agency Saturday]." That apparently began to change when Ruutu, who is in his native Finland, and Shero had a telephone conversation. "He just listened," Shero said. "I told him what we're trying to do here, and why I thought it would be a good fit for him. "I know people from Finland who know him very well. He has leadership and character and can help us get this thing turned around and going in the right direction."
more Also from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette- The Pens have some interest in Yanic Perreault.
