Pittsburgh Penguins GM Jim Rutherford has thrown his support behind coach Mike Johnston.
"He's done a very good job with what he's had to work with," Rutherford said. "Given all the injured players and difficult circumstances, we've been very happy with the job that Mike and his staff have done getting the team to the cusp of the playoffs." The Penguins have had to deal with some injury problems, but given the talent of this roster, we have a tough time buying into the idea that missing the playoffs or even just barely making them should be regarded as an acceptable outcome. That being said, it's not surprising to see Rutherford support Johnston because it is the standard for a general manager to publicly support his coach regardless of what the results have been. Because of that, any general manager's endorsement of a bench boss has to be taken with a grain of salt. It's also worth noting that Johnston will still end up looking like a hero if his Penguins enjoy a lengthy playoff run despite their shaky regular season. Apr 9 - 11:32 AM
