Sources say NBC analyst Pierre McGuire has had two interviews for the Penguins' GM job. McGuire was an asst coach on their '92 Cup team.

 

Don't mean to add fuel to the fire, but I can tell you that Pierre is tight with multiple people in the organization.

 

 

Whenever the pundits say to fire the GM or the coach, the first question I ask is, who out there is better on the market right now than who they have in the position.

 

Is Pierre an upgrade over Shero?  I don't believe he is.  Especially considering he has been a TV analyst for years.

If it happens, NBC's hockey broadcasts can only get better.

He may be annoying and awkward as part of the broadcast team, but Pierre has a great hockey mind. Very knowledgeable about the game.

Just because he's awkward?

No. Because he is obnoxious, clearly biased on national broadcasts, annoying, and he gets away with it all.

I agree completely. He's a doofus and awkward on television, but he knows a ton about hockey. I can appreciate what Pierre brings to a telecast far more than fan boy Edzo. He's just a cheerleader on national broadcasts.

If McGuire hasn't changed his ways since his time as coach of the Whalers he'll be a disaster as a GM.

So how does his time as a coach show how good of a GM he is going to be?  Sure, he may not have been a people person back in 1994, but he knows the game.  Being a general manager is more about the people he has around him.

I agree that he is annoying, and I don't think his charisma and how he carries conversations allow him to be an effective tv personality, but as far as broadcasters and analysts that work for NBC, I think Pierre is one of the least biased of the group.

Hey, hiring an analyst just because he can say words on TV that sound almost not stupid is a great idea.  Just ask the Lions.


Oh this young man has had a very trying rookie season, with the litigation, the notoriety, his subsequent deportation to Canada and that country's refusal to accept him, well, I guess that's more than most 21-year-olds can handle... Ogie Ogilthorpe!

I still think they are trying to either keep Botterill or go after Fenton or if the Leafs are stupid enough to fire Nonis after him.

 

Crosbys agent (Brisson) already declined the job smart move.

I really hope he gets hired. I don't have to listen to him scream into his microphone every time the arena gets loud when he is talking into something that projects is voice for him! So annoying.

Agreed.

 

Just because many fans throughout the NHL dislike him for any odd reason doesn't take away the fact that he knows the game better than 99.9% of those very same fans.

I agree with this, but certainly not about the part concerning 'Edzo'.

Maybe I'm getting old, or maybe I don't give a crap, but I can honestly say that I've never heard Mcguire being 'clearly biased'...Yeah - he chats up certain players/teams, but he's doing it because they're exceptional.

I agree with what you are saying.  I really don't think he is biased at all either.  His job is to talk up the star players, and he does just that.  Since we are Wings fans, anyone who doesn't kiss the asses of the Red Wings is obviously biased against the Wings.

If he gets the job, I wish him well.  He's a tv analyst.  Why on Earth would anyone wish for another person to fail?

Ok, Pierre knows the game. Knows it well. And I have no doubt that he'd surprise some ppl as a GM. But he is incredibly biased IMO, whether that translates into his possible management career remains to be seen.
