The Penguins Pair of Mistakes and Missed Opportunities



Pittsburgh Penguins Tristan Jarry

No one is perfect, right? The Pittsburgh Penguins coaching staff and GM Jim Rutherford completed yeoman’s work this season as the Penguins transitioned from a veteran-laded, sated group to a young and fast squad with a heavy one-two combo at the top of the lineup with Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin.

But not everything was perfect, and a couple of critical decisions could bite the Penguins like a dog with snarling teeth.

The Matt Murray vs. Tristan Jarry decisions have been a treasure trove of second-guessing and fan desires, but Sullivan made one mistake, which denied everyone a crucial detail that could shape the Penguins future.

And Rutherford perhaps made a mistake near the NHL trade deadline. While Sullivan’s decision could linger for years, Rutherford’s tack could make a huge difference in a few weeks.
