Insider Only Post-Game Reactions on Acquisition of Trevor Daley & More


Penguins GM Jim Rutherford said today the trade of Rob Scuderi for Trevor Daley really got serious in the past couple days.

“When I really got serious about this deal, it was probably in last 2-3 days,” said Rutherford after the Penguins 4-1 loss to the Capitals tonight.

“We like Trevor because he can skate and move the puck,” said Rutherford. “Trevor’s been a good NHL player. Can help our team [in puck moving department].”

Rutherford indicated what he likes about Daley is that while he’s a left shot, he likes to play the right side.

Rutherford said he wasn’t actively looking to move Scuderi but did talk to some teams around training camp in what would have been a salary cap move.
