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.

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 Get Hagelin from Ducks for Perron, Clendening

00ppfront The Pittsburgh Penguins have a new left wing. Burning the midnight oil in the wake of last night’s 5-4 overtime loss to Tampa Bay, general manager Jim Rutherford swapped underachieving forward David Perron and spare defenseman Adam Clendening to Anaheim for left wing Carl Hagelin. Impetus for the deal? Struggling offenses and disappointing ov [...]
