Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Chip Alexander of Canes Now at the News & Observer,
Canes fans seem to appreciate Tuomo Ruutu and his sometimes rambunctious, often entertaining brand of hockey. When he controls the puck or smacks somebody into the boards at the RBC Center, there is the “R-UUUUU” rumble from the stands.
And guess what? Ruutu likes it here, too. A restricted free agent after the season, he made it clear this week that he hopes to stay with this team, in this city.
“I feel like it’s home here,” he said. “It was a big change coming from Chicago, but right away I felt like I came home.
“This season I realized it — that it’s a great place to live and to play, as well.”
