PRESS RELEASE WRITTEN BY & A COURTESY OF COLUMBUS BLUE JACKETS COMMUNICATIONS

Pittsburgh Penguins stay busy, naming Jim Rutherford as new GM

The Pittsburgh Penguins fired head coach Dan Bylsma and hired a new GM, Jim Rutherford all in the same day.

The 65-year-old Rutherford resigned the same position back in April with the Carolina Hurricanes. He replaces Ray Shero, who was fired three weeks ago.

Rutherford is a former 5’8, 160-pound goalie in the NHL from 1969-1983 with Detroit, Toronto and the LA Kings.

This is a homecoming for him with Pittsburgh, as he played goaltender for the team in the 1970′s.

After his playing career, he spent 20 years with the Hartford Whalers franchise, who moved to North Carolina in 1997 and became the Carolina Hurricanes. Carolina won the Stanley Cup in 2006.

As expected, Pittsburgh Penguins fire Dan Bylsma

Dan Bylsma is a good NHL coach. He’s a Stanley Cup winning coach with 252 career wins.

But in the end, those facts did not allow him to keep his job with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

It was rumored by several members of the Pittsburgh media during the recent playoff series with the Columbus Blue Jackets that Bylsma could or would lose his job. Management did not like the fact that the Blue Jackets caused all kind of havoc to make the Penguins scuffle to win the series in six games. The the loss to the Rangers in the next series after having a commanding lead left a bad taste in the mouth.

The 252 games won with the Penguins is a franchise record.

But the fact that he could not win another Stanley Cup with players like Sidney Crosby, Evgeni Malkin, Kris Letang, James Neal and Brooks Orpik was unacceptable to management.

Since winning the Stanley Cup in 2009, Pittsburgh lost series to lower-seeded teams and ended up with 4-5 playoff series record.

The past few months have been difficult for the 43-year-old Bylsma. He coached Team USA in the Sochi Olympics back in February would could not win a medal.

New Carolina Hurricanes GM Ron Francis wasting no time in cleaning house for a “fresh start”

Ron Francis was one of the NHL’s best centers during his career which lasted form 1981-2004. He was used to winning and was inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2007 after playing for the Hartford Whalers, Pittsburgh, Carolina and Toronto.

It has come to no one’s surprise to Carolina Hurricanes fans and media in North Carolina that he has started cleaning house after taking over as the general manager last week from Jim Rutherford who resigned after two decades.

The Hurricanes former captain and assistant coach fired head coach Kirk Muller and most of his staff. Muller was 80-80-27 with the Hurricanes. Also shown the door were assistant coaches Dave Lewis and John MacLean. Goaltending coach Greg Stefan has been reassigned to the team’s pro scouting department.

Francis, who was an imposing center during his playing days at 6’3, 200 pounds, said that no one’s job is safe on the team not even the most-popular stars. He also stated that a fresh start is needed for a franchise who has made the Stanley Cup playoffs only once in the past eight years.

The Hurricanes have won a Stanley Cup, in 2005-2006. They’ve won two Eastern Conference championships in 2001-02 and 2005-06.
