Was Jim Rutherford being calculated or combustible?

Either way, the Penguins’ general manager voiced his extreme displeasure this week with what at the time was a four-game losing streak when he appeared with Josh Getzoff on the bi-weekly “The GMJR Show,” at 6 p.m., Wednesday, on the Pens’ flagship, 105.9 “The X.”

Wednesday night’s 2-1 loss to the Capitals extended the Penguins’ losing streak to five consecutive games and dropped their overall record to 6-5-3.

Rutherford threatened significant changes if things didn’t turn around in a hurry prior to the Capitals game.

“I wonder if this group’s been together too long,” Rutherford offered. “Maybe we need to change it up. That’s what I’ll watch for here in the next few games.

“It’s something that I always have to watch for, when do you have to make those changes? The players are doing everything they can to tell me ‘now’s the time.’”
