MAJOR | Journalist makes a major revelation regarding Jim Rutherford: multiple sources states he wants out

The Vancouver Canucks hired the renowned Jim Rutherford as President to take over and set the team on the right path.

Let's face it, Rutherford's best days are behind him (he will turn 74) and his ability to perform a full retool/rebuild in a tough Canadian market was highly questioned. Rutherford had even announced he'd decided to retire when he left the Pens and it was actually Aquillini that convinced him to get back in the game.

Jeff Paterson shared extremely intriguing information on the matter and it may set quite the consternation around the organization:

"More than one hockey person I've run into this weekend believes Jim Rutherford wants out as President of the Vancouver Canucks. That's the kind of mess this situation is in."




The Canucks are not really in a position where they can afford to lose yet another staff member. Rutherford's tenure in the Canucks organization has not yet provided the wanted effect, if he were to quit, could Allvin hold the fort? It seems that for the latest bit, Rutherford has been calling the shots and Allvin was only there for the cameras.

What kind of image would that leave on the team if the President were to resign a little over a year into his contract?
