Could be nothing more than a clash with management, but Pittsburgh Penguins GM Jim Rutherford resigned abruptly today 'for personal reasons' only 7 games into the new NHL season.  He had been GM since 2014 and won two Stanley Cups.

Follow the team.  It's the only team I follow.  The resignation was not health related.

Of those only Pavelich and Crozier could (should) QO.  Stasiuk if it’s a slow news day.  The Inverness Courier and Ross-Shire Journal might confuse McLeod as part of Clan McLeod and give a write-up.

Glenn Hall is the only one who will. Very far shot of Pavelich. When's the last time an old non-Hall of Famer QOed?
