Jim Rutherford is already on record, he believes it will be difficult to successfully trade during the season during the 2020-21 NHL campaign. As he says, trading players from the US to Canada and vice versa is based on the need to isolate players and miss some of the already condensed seasons. That said, Rutherford is essentially a Wheel and Deal GM.
The penguins were relatively quiet
Despite the fact that he could do most of the deal before the NHL training camp began-technically there’s still a bit of time-Razaford hasn’t done much since the start of this year’s NHL offseason. Is not … He was busy early, so the penguins became relatively quiet.
There’s always background talk about reconstruction, the age of core roster members, and celebrities (including trade talks including Evgeni Malkin and Chris Lutan), but no one knows how serious the talks are. Rutherford speaks in general only if he doesn’t recognize what those names mean to the franchise. Still, the penguins are silent.
I don’t like penguins not participating in most of the free agent chatter and Dan Kingerski Pittsburgh Hockey Now I believe there is a reason why I don’t hear much about penguins.
What do penguins cook?
If Rutherford doesn’t think mid-season trading will be easier, does that mean he’s moving away from them? Probably not. Penguins didn’t participate in the talk of free agents for affordable players like Karl Sodaberg and Eric Howra, so King Serkushi believes there may be trade in future productions.
Kingerksi wrote that league sources said, “If (Razaford) locks in a player, it can be stubborn.” The comments were intended to show that Rutherford usually gets what he wants. In this case, sources added, “I think Jim is waiting (the player name has been deleted).”
The player’s name was clearly excluded from the post because the source wasn’t the one who worked for the penguins. He didn’t want to get the word out without going any further. And while this is possible for anyone, there is talk that anyone that Rutherford is looking at can change the overall dynamics of the penguins organization.
“In a few days, the opposite team scooped up the cream of the second wave of free agent crops. No more free agents can bottom out the penguins line.
If the penguins aren’t looking at the depth, they must be looking at something bigger. interesting.
