JIM RUTHERFORD RUMORS

Keeping Perspective by @BrianK_PI

It was an uneventful draft weekend for the Pittsburgh Penguins. With a league low four draft picks, including just the 46th overall in the first four rounds, the team wasn't expected to make much of a splash at the draft podium.

It is that special time again. The night we hear a bunch of rumors – then we are let down as nothing happens. But is there hope? Maybe someone will spot Jim Rutherford roaming Ft.

Break Down: The Jim Rutherford puff piece that can only leave you shaking your head

Disclaimer – because you can’t say anything bad about the Penguins anymore without thousands of irrational Penguin fans, and journalists accusing you of “hating” the Penguins. 1. Yes, in a rare attempt to beat people to a story. We said we heard that Jim Rutherford would be fired after last season. Of course that didn’t happened. As “journalists” and many of the people...

Pittsburgh Penguins still need top-six winger

Pittsburgh Penguins General Manager Jim Rutherford is adamant that his team has all the pieces they need to be competitive this season. Sorry, but I don’t see it.
