Irony.

McGuire a GM. Thats a laugher. He's and idiot. Go ahead and take the job just we can get your ugly mug off my tube. He will also run that franchise deeper into the ground.

If they do hire Creepy Pete, I'll have a new least-favorite team.

YEEEESSSS!!! Chalk up another in the "selfish" column - I was really, really hoping he'd stay here (er, in Detroit, I mean...don't even think about coming to Southern California, Stevie!), even though I do wish him all the success in the world.

Oh god, I couldn't wish Pierre on anybody. I mean, it'd be beyond great to finally get him out of my TV set, but I wouldn't sic him on the poor guys of the Lightning. Can't somebody just find him a job in the mail room or something?

This was basically the same thing I was going to say on all accounts, haha

Yzerman stay in Detroit - check
McGuire a parasite - check

yea, you basically covered it!

TFP is generally not very reliable, however, not sure why Steve would want this position anyway. I know he'd likely jump if a good opportunity came his way, but you have to imagine that most guys want to stay clear of Tampa.

Not surprised that Yzerman has said no. I don't think at the moment he is too keen on moving his family away from the Detriot area.

As the man himself says:

"The situation has to be right for me and my family," he said. "Believe it or not, being a part of this organization and living in Detroit is something I cherish."


As far as I'm concerned Yzerman is the ONLY canditate that should be considered whenever Ken Holland decides to step down.

And P.J. McGuire becoming the new GM of the Tampa - I just lol'd.

Tampa actually seems like one of the best opportunities there is now... new ownership that wants to win and is very hands off, GM gets to choose new coaching staff and inherits a LOT of young talent and some high picks in this years draft... furthermore, you add in the contingency of MI transplants in Tampa and this could potentially be the single best fit he could find outside of Detroit... I'm just glad he's not leaving

Great news! Stevie has better taste than that.

Please, Lord, let them hire Pee-air so he will stop showing up on hockey broadcasts. Please!! <_<

I think he knew he was always going to stay here. He just wanted that feeling of mixing it up somewhere else. Detroit is the place for him.

ugh... like I said:

I'm just glad he's not leaving

This is actually the scenario that scares me the most... I really hope he stays put :nervous: :shock: :confused:

I didn't post the article to show how Tampa's a good fit. The main point from the article was that it refutes previous reports that Yzerman declined Tampa. If this source is reliable, apparently Yzerman's still the front-runner.

As an aside though, does anyone think Yzerman would even consider TB if it weren't were Stamkos? He singlehandedly makes that entire organization so much more appealing. Hedman helps as well (but to a much lesser extent).

I wasn't saying you were... I was merely showing what I posted earlier, to show why Tampa scares me about him leaving... read it in context.

Sorry man, my bad. I misunderstood.

I just assumed that the 'ugh...like I said' meant you were grudgingly rehashing because you thought I was bringing up old news.
