Pens GM Rutherford bullish on future

PITTSBURGH (AP) When Jim Rutherford took over as Pittsburgh Penguins general manager last summer, he stressed ownership wanted a "complete change in direction," one that would return a talented if aging roster into one capable of once again lifting the Stanley Cup.

Less than 11 months later the Penguins are older, thinner and coming off their earliest playoff exit in nearly a decade. While Rutherford felt enough at ease on Tuesday to joke about his job status - the 66-year-old deadpanned that he planned to be around another dozen seasons - he knows a postseason run that barely lasted a week isn't what the club had in mind.

"We fell short of our goal," Rutherford said. "We fell short of our expectations. Obviously that's very disappointing for us all. So now we have to move forward."
