I mean, it's coming from Pensblog. So who knows? But it's surprising to me. I really liked most of the moves he made. The salary cap mismanagement wouldn't have been a big deal if the team didn't have the worst injury luck, but it was still a pretty big fuck up.

SOURCES: JIM RUTHERFORD WILL BE REMOVED AS GM THIS OFFSEASON
Posted by TPB Staff on Apr 21, 2015 08:30

Now, we don’t get spoon-fed our info like others in town.

But we’ve confirmed that Jim Rutherford is out as GM the minute the season ends, unless the season somehow ends in a Cup run.

According to at least two people with knowledge of the situation, Rutherford will be asked to resign to avoid public perception that the Penguins will have fired their second GM in as many seasons.

It is believed that Bill Guerin is the lead candidate to fill the spot.

Rutherford’s mishandling of the salary cap down the stretch is reportedly one factor that has led to this situation. And possibly his penchant for naughty language.

CB Jimmy Smith of Balty just got a 4/$41M extension FFS.  I know I know I know, The Steelers WAY.  Well, you know, fuck that, we have three, three, exactly THREE guys who determine our future over the coming 4 year window.  Yeah, lots of other guys figure too, but Ben, AB, and Bell.  Ben been taken care of.  AB has outplayed his contract.  Bell, despite the fungibility of RBs, figures to be young and productive enough to require a solid C$2.  But for now, AB needs to be at least commensurate with some top-10 WR salaried bobos who are not fit to eat the corn out of his shit.

AB has, IIRC, 3/$32, of which some $9M has already been delivered via signing and restructuring bonii.  Take the remaining salary, slather out a new guaranteed sum like a schmear of schmaltz on a nice slice of rye, I don't care how much that is either unless o'course dude gets hurt, but... sumpin' like we tear up your deal and deliver 5/$55.  Which hits the magical $11M/year that eejits like Wallace and Vince Jackson pull, but also gives AB that $9M from previous deals or closer to 5/$64.

He's happy, we rent his prime years, and believe me he's worth it, and we can carve cap savings into 2016-17 when we need it more than 2015.

Just threaten Cortez with either being cut or giving AB a few milly each year for the next 3 years.  Problem solved.

Going against the grain, he's vastly outplayed his deal.  Pierre Garcon and Torrey Smith he ain't, though his deal sits between those two guys' totals.  You don't have an AB come around every draft; sit down and figure out how to extend him a couple of years, sweeten the pot, and keep him happy.  He has the lowest guaranteed money of any of the top-10 paid WRs, by a good bit.  It shouldn't break the bank to do this.

Good news is Chorney has looked very good. Very steady defenseman, can chip in on offense, QB a power play. Kind of reminds me of Jordan Leopold with a left handed shot.

Right? Where did this guy even come from? He's never mentioned in the highly touted pool of undeveloped defensemen in Wilkes-Barre.

It's obvious but the missing defenseman are really killing this team. Martin, Cole and Chorney seem to be the only ones that can actually hit a tape to tape with the forwards to get a rush started. Imagine this series with Maatta, Letang, Pouliet, and Erhoff healthy.

Good news is Chorney has looked very good. Very steady defenseman, can chip in on offense, QB a power play. Kind of reminds me of Jordan Leopold with a left handed shot.

By the way, Erhoff stopped practicing (he's probably done) and word is Letang is done no matter what. So Pouliet would be the only addition on defense possibly this series.
