NBC's Pierre McGuire Among Large Pool Of Candidates For Pens' GM Vacancy
Published June 4, 2014
TIGHT-LIPPED: In Raleigh, Chip Alexander cites an ESPN.com report, which said that Hurricanes President & former GM Jim Rutherford “could be a candidate” for the position. When asked yesterday about his interest, Rutherford said, “I’m not going to comment. I’m under contract with the Hurricanes, so that’s the extent of it.” In April, when Ron Francis succeeded him as Hurricanes GM, Rutherford “hinted something else might come along to spark his interest and keep him working in the NHL” (Raleigh NEWS & OBSERVER, 6/4).
FIXING A HOLE: In Pittsburgh, Rossi & Yohe note the Penguins are the only NHL team currently without a GM. Penguins President & CEO David Morehouse is “spearheading the search” and he “reports directly” to majority co-Owner & Chair Mario Lemieux and co-Owner Ron Burkle. COO Travis Williams also has “participated in candidate interviews.” Morehouse said that there is “no date set” by which to have a GM in place (PITTSBURGH TRIBUNE-REVIEW, 6/4).
