Interesting choice.


"If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!" - Kierkegaard

It's a good move.  Nobody else available is as good as Rutherford.  He's no superstar, but he's not Jay Jeaster, Darcy Regier, or Pierref****** Mcguire either.

McGuire always a bridesmaid... Just the tip. 


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

I was talking with a Pens fan last night who was crushed because he was convinced Pierre was going to get the job.

Blysma fired.

 

Pittsburgh treated him like crap.  They should have just let him go back when they fired Sherro.

I agree.  They handled that terrible.  No matter what they decided to do it was going to end up classless.  If you wait this long and fire him, you're just leaving a guy's neck on the chopping block unnecessarily long.  And If you wait this long and don't fire him, but don't publicly back him, you've basically told him you have no faith in him and the first minor screw up is going to get him canned.  Who could coach in a situation like that?

Wow Pittsburgh that was incredible classless and also LOL at going from Shero to Rutherford a guy who hasn't done anything for the Hurricanes by not having a bad roster on paper.

 

Also they should have fired Bylsma the day Shero was fired so he would have been able to look at other offeers, what a joke that organization has become *lol*

They probably wanted him to. He probably has a no compete clause if he quits.

Great stories being circulated that Pierre the Pinhead really thought this job was going to be his and wasn't shy to tell anyone who would listen of his belief.

Good thing he's still got that broadcasting gig.

5 playoff berths in 20 years for Jimmy as GM. Strangely enough, 3 ECFs, 2 SCFs and a Cup. He's pretty terrible at drafting which is part of the reason the Pens axed Shero. Strange move.

Not sure the Penguins know what they are doing anymore with anything.

 

In two or three years from now with, more than likely, similar or worse results does Tort's "favorite" players begin looking elsewhere?
