Breaking: Tuomo Ruutu injured?

Tuomo Ruutu of the Carolina Hurricanes has been injured. He has been in a lot of rumors and with his injury, it could cancel all the deals in place. Only time will tell.

Mike Comrie retired.

Mike Comrie has officially retired. In 589 games, he had 365 points and 443 PIM in 15 years. Just a quick note. Mike Comrie could have been a Anaheim Duck. There was an old deal in place that would have traded Comrie to the Ducks in exchange for Corey Perry and a first round pick (Ladislav Smid) but that fell through.

Some quick news and trades.

The Anaheim Ducks trade Maxime Macenauer to the Winnipeg Jets in exchange for Riley Holzapfel.

Macenauer is a good center that always knows where to be when he wants to bank in a few goals. He will be a long term project, and after that I can't really be sure if he will be a good player. After a lot of reading and analysis I see him as a minor leaguer and nothing more.

Holzapfel is a lot like Macenauer ,but needs to beef up if he wants to make it to the bigs. He has some potential but I think his overall skill set is a bit better than Macenauer's.

To follow up on yesterday Sutton's deal is 1 year $1.5 Million. 

Decision on Tuomo Ruutu is expected later this week.
