Penguins GM Jim Rutherford countered recently rumors that the Penguins will trade Phil Kessel.
"Phil Kessel's an important part of the Penguins," Rutherford said on 93.7 The Fan. "He gets a lot of points. He scores big goals. He sets up big goals. The more impact players that you have, like we have, the better chance you have of winning." The general manager went on to say that while he won't rule out the possibility of Kessel someday being traded again he doesn't foresee it happening right now. Kessel hasn't found the back of the net with the same frequency that he did with Toronto, but he certainly has had a big impact offensively. He had 23 goals and 70 points in 82 games last season and then another eight goals and 23 points in 24 playoff contests. Jul 14 - 10:00 AM
