Penguins Rutherford Deserves Praise

PC_140606_098i5_jim_rutherford_sn635-450x252 I’ll be honest. Jim Rutherford wasn’t my choice to succeed Ray Shero as the Penguins’ general manager back in the summer of 2014. I’m not sure he was the Pens’ top choice, either. The club was considering associate GM Jason Botterill and analyst Pierre McGuire, among others, before JR emerged—seemingly from left field—to win the job. Now? It [...]

Penguins Update: Revisiting Ray’s Drafts

shero2 In Ray we trust. Remember that axiom? Indeed, it wasn’t all that long ago that former Penguins (and current Devils) general manager Ray Shero was the toast of the town. Back when he regularly fleeced his GM brethren (Chris Kunitz for Ryan Whitney). Moves that earned him General Manager of the Year honors in 2013. Before a string of playoff di [...]

Penguins Update: Kids Earning Their Keep

Scarcely 24 hours after a no-show, 4-2 loss to Calgary on home ice, the Penguins turned on the jets and walloped the overmatched New Jersey Devils at the Prudential Center by a score of 6-1. “Obviously this was the response we were looking for,” coach Mike Sullivan said. “We believe in our leadership group. We [...]

Penguins Quiet at Trade Deadline

00ppfront For Penguins fans expecting a blockbuster, it must’ve been a disappointing day. Quiet, too. Aside from a pair of minor deals with Arizona, Pens GM Jim Rutherford was content to play the role of bystander. A far cry from last season, when he orchestrated two of the more shocking and controversial deals at the trade deadline. As anticipated, th [...]

Penguins Sheary a Hit

pp0579 About a month ago I sat down to write a piece about a favorite bone of contention, the Penguins’ lack of size. Conor Sheary—just recalled from the Baby Pens—was going to be my focus. I tapped out a few lines and, feeling uninspired, pushed away from the keyboard. One of the very few times as a PenguinPoop blogger I’ve done that. I’m so glad [...]
