Building the 2016 Penguins

In 2014, the Pittsburgh Penguins hired Jim Rutherford as their General Manager. He made several key changes to the Penguins roster, such as acquiring Phil Kessel in a blockbuster trade, as well as several free agent signings. The team also hired Mike Sullivan mid-season to take over as head coach, putting the team back on track to victory. ;xNLx;;xNLx;Timeline by Sal Barry | PuckJunk.com
