“We will trade that pick if it can help us get a player who can help us immediately,” Rutherford said
Wait didn’t the Penguins fire Ray Shero because he didn’t draft well? So, it is Jim Rutherford’s first draft and he wants to trade the pick? In the rest of the article, Rutherford just keeps talking and talking…
“I had a couple of guys that I considered top candidates who did not interview originally,” Rutherford said. “The reason was because I believed they were committed elsewhere and weren’t available. Since then, I’ve contacted them to see if they have that commitment. Those are guys I’m going to be talking to.”
That quote makes no sense.
