That could be high comedy indeed to see him completely run the Sens into the ground. Better yet, when he does let's have the NHL then relocate them to Kansas City or Seattle.

Good get that f***** off of my TV!

"The more I know about people - the better I like my dog." - Mark Twain

"A wise man once told me, ‘Don’t argue with fools. Cause people from a distance can’t tell who is who'." Jay Z, Takeover

"When I was looking for a captain, I wanted a guy with the Red Wings crest tattooed on his chest," said former Detroit coach Jacques Demers, who named Yzerman captain in 1986. "Steve Yzerman was that guy."

“Told him if he wasn't ultra-competitive he couldn't come here. If he didn't bring it every day he couldn't come here, because he was going to hate it if he didn't, dislike the coach and dislike playing here.
“It's real straightforward. If you don't do it right, you're not happy here." Babcock

If he takes the job, how is he going to handle the conflict between his never ending erection for the Penguins and his allegiance to his new team?

Please God. Oh PLEASE God, make this happen. Maybe he can make Milbury his assistant GM and make it a two-fer?

As a huge Pierre fan I would be quite torn about this. I would be very happy for him of course and would love to watch him take the helm of my 2nd favourite team and have success, but on the other hand we wouldn't get to see him on TV anymore :(

EDIT: He finished 2nd place on the Minnesota Wild GM job

I would love to never hear that guy speak again, reading his quips or an occasional blurb on HNIC is an upgrade over getting stuck with him for full games in the playoffs.
"It is a lot easier to be an ******* to words than to people"-xkcd

Tootoo does NOT belong on this team. He is classless and I would rather see the Wings be bad than classless. I feel the same way about Bertuzzi as well, but he at least CAN make the team better. With Tootoo the team becomes worse and in danger of being classless. Would you have liked Claude on the team? Or Roy? No. So why would you be okay with that POS.

I think the same could have been said for Stevie when he took over in Tampa. Many people have proclaimed that he would fail just because he didn't have the experience being a GM. Pierre has won two Stanley cups in Pittsburg as an assistant coach and scout. He may be a great GM. I doubt it as well, but he just might be. Gotta give the guy a shot. I wouldn't do it though. :)

Poor Ottawa. Always a bridesmaid, and now they're stuck with an ugly best man.

Echoing others here, at least it will get Pee-air off the broadcasts.

Now, someone find a front office job for Eddie O.

I'd plus you for this post, but your head is already swollen. :P
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Pierre is creepy at times. But on the other hand, he knows his stuff. He knows a lot about prospects. He has great connections. I honestly think he'd be one of the better GMs in the league.

I agree if it gets him off TV then I'm all for it. I cant handle hearing him tell the story of the WJC game between Finland and Sweden that he broadcast anymore. Its been 5 years Pierre everyone knows the story!
