Jim Rutherford Today

from the Pittsburgh Penguins,

Penguins general manager Jim Rutherford met with the media on Tuesday to wrap up the 2014-15 season. Here is the full transcript of his remarks.

Opening remarks:
Thank you for coming. Our season’s come to an end. We fell short of our goal. We fell short of our expectations. Obviously that’s very disappointing for us all. So now we have to move forward.

I’ll briefly run through our year. We started off the season, we had to make some changes, we lost some players to free agency. We made an offseason trade and so there were a number of changes for our team.

For the most part, our team competed well, played pretty well. We dealt with some adversity early, losing (Olli) Maatta and (Pascal) Dupuis. We were able to fill the hole that was Dupuis not totally, but by making a deal and getting (David) Perron. Perron came in early, did some good things, scored some big goals, helped us win some games.

There were a lot of things happened. I won’t go through them all but some of the strange things such as the mumps we had to deal with, certainly that affected some of our players. Not only in that window of having the mumps but the recovery period. I would say for most guys that had the mumps that was a three-week period that they had to deal with.
