It seems as though former Penguin Jarkko Ruutu has made himself at home in Ottawa especially on a line that TSN is referring to as the "energy line." It's made up of Cody Bass-Chris Neil-Jarkko Ruutu and reports are that they pack a punch creating plays, supporting each other, forechecking well. TSN's Ray Ferraro says that Ottawa may "have come upon a line they may want to use early in the season." and Pierre McGuire reports they appear to have good chemisty. It's honestly nice to hear that Ruutu is doing well, but too bad it isn't with Pittsburgh!!
We'll find out all about Ruutu's "energy line" soon enough when the Penguins play the Ottawa Senators on October 4th and 5th in Stockholm, Sweden to start out the opening of the 2008-2009 NHL season.
