While somebody getting arrested is never good news, this will not hurt the team. VandenBussche rarely played and when he did play he never did what he was supposed to do.......fight and play physical. Obviously off the ice he has no problem throwing down though..lol.

One guy I would not mind seeing the Pens snag is Domi for a one year deal. While Domi is old, he still plays a physical game, puts a few pucks in the net now and again, won't cost much and most importantly, players will think twice when taking a run at Malkin or Crosby next season.

In a perfect world, I would love to see this team pick up Peca. That price tag is the problem though.

Maybe not Domi, but this guy will do!

http://www.pittsburghpenguins.com/te...rts/1935.0.php

PITTSBURGH ? The Pittsburgh Penguins have signed forward Jarkko Ruutu, it was announced Tuesday by General Manager Ray Shero.

Ruutu, 30, appeared in all 82 games during the 2005-06 season with the Vancouver Canucks, recording 17 points (10+7) and 142 penalty minutes. Ruutu established new career highs in games played, goals, points and penalty minutes. Additionally, Ruutu won a silver medal with Finland at the 2006 Winter Olympics.

The 6-0 and 200-pound native of Helsinki, Finland has appeared in 267 career NHL games, all with Vancouver, recording 51 points (23+28) and 453 penalty minutes. Ruutu won a silver medal with Finland at the 2004 World Cup of Hockey, playing in four games during the tournament.


Remember folks - he is the man who took out Jaromir Jagr at the Olympics, and is one of the most hated players in the NHL. The Pens seem to love signing guys like this - Ulfie, Kaspar, now Jarkko!

Nice, we go out and pick up the most hated and one of the meanest players in the game. This team will finally have a mean streak. A little bite. Sounds good to me. Domi had 16 points last season and Ruutu with 17. Domi is 37 and Ruutu is 30.

I'm liking Shero more and more everyday......

Yup, a lot of Ruutu's "finer" moments in his career

If he continues to play like that as a Penguin, he'll definitely be right up there with Ulfie and Kaspar, who are both still extremely popular with the fans.

The Pens do need a bad boy and Ruufu could be just what the doctor ordered. Cairns is a big boy, but isn't as physical as I would like. I think this was an excellent move!

GO PENS! (and hurry up hockey season!)

All we need now is that sniper to play with Crosby - Brendan Shanahan, anyone?

If we are going to go that old, I would rather spend the money on Yanic Perreault (35). He would answer the need for a faceoff specialist. At the same time, he's slowing down. New NHL, all speed. I doubt your going to see us go out and sign any big names players (Shanny, Peca, etc.). Shero already made that very clear a few days ago.

"If it's about the money, don't come," he said. "I think it's a young team that's on the rise. There are some top players here. [Sergei] Gonchar's one of the better offensive guys in the league, Ryan Whitney's a young guy, playing with [Sidney] Crosby, hopefully, we'll have [Evgeni] Malkin. This is an up-and-coming team.

"A certain player at a certain time of his career has a chance to make a bigger impact with a team like Pittsburgh than they do with their current team, or they have a chance to play a more prominent role, or a leadership role. There's opportunity here. That's what I'm looking for.

"I'm not looking for the guy who wants the biggest contract, or the longest contract. Maybe a guy's going to take more of a role than he had before, and he's looking forward to that challenge. Maybe there's a good fit like that. If there's not, we'll keep looking." - Ray Shero

I've wanted the Pens to bring Perreault in for years, and I wouldn't mind it, though word is that he's not fast enough for the new game. Faceoffs are one area the Pens have been sorely lacking ever since Ron Francis left.

That said, you still need guys who can put the puck in the net, and a guy like Shanahan or even Sergei Samsonov would fit that role. I like Shero's approach and commitment to a young team, but sometimes you have to bite the bullet and pay out some cash to bring in the guy you need. Isn't that what we constantly get on Pirates' management for NOT doing?
