He's got a face made for radio, and a voice made for Morse Code

The New Jersey Devils win Stanley Cups everywhere:
-NHL record for most road wins in the playoffs - 10-1 in '95 and 10-2 in '00
-NHL record for most home wins in the playoffs - 12-1 in '03

I'm surprised people are so down on Pierre, doesn't he kiss Zach's fanny and praise the Devils for having a more 'exciting' system now (he's apparently one of the few in the media that notice we don't play the Lemaire trap)?
Oh yes, the NJ Devils no longer trap even tho we've forechecked (or at least tried to) for the past decade. Thanks Pierre

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?

Between all of the analysts and announcers on NBC, how many silver things have they won?
I am having trouble naming one an the closets ones are Barry as coach if the kings and JR on the blakhawks.
Um, is this a joke? Pierre McGuire himself has his name on the Stanley Cup as an assistant coach with the Penguins, and Olczyk won as a player with the Rangers.

Was at a bar watching the game with no sound, so I can't speak to anything he said tonight. However, I think he's one of the best in the business. He does a good job at the draft , from saying immediately that the Devils got a steal in Parise and Larsson, and even on the Fan where he doesn't relexively say how awesome the Rangers are. In fact he often makes an extra effort to talk about other teams when Francesa or whoever just wants it to be about the Rangers.
This is his problem, though, he needs to do justice to certain people or places. I can't tell you how often he namedrops random junior hockey coaches, junior hockey teams, college teams, ECHL teams, AHL teams, etc. etc. - the dude knows his stuff, he knows the league in terms of where players played better than anyone. But he trots it out when it's not relevant information.

Amazingly, I don't think he hates the Devils at all. I've heard him in his weekly segment on XM's NHL Home ICe channel, and he always has good things to say about the team, and picked them as his dark horse to make a long run in these playoffs. I just think that, when it comes to national TV, they are told to talk about and highlight certain teams all the time (Philly, Rangers, Detroit, Pitt, etc.), at the expense of whoever they are playing.
And every time I hear Kenny Albert speak, all I keep hearing in my head is "YEEESSSS!!!"

“I think winning against them in the big stage, not just for me, but for the fans of New Jersey, people that are supporting us and always take a second seat to these guys for whatever reason, now they’ve got to be pretty happy going to work and going to school and doing all their things that they do." - Martin Brodeur

“They’re the ones that makes it happen,” Lemaire said. “It’s not us. It’s not me. It’s not the other guy. It’s not the guy before. It’s not the guy after. It’s them. And they have to take care of business.”

I agree with this. I tend to enjoy when Doc and Pang get together though because it reminds me of playing NHL faceoff 99 on the original playstation.
pierre was a bit over the top tonight and the flyers being comfortable gaffe was a joke. but normally, i am actually a fan of his. clearly knows his stuff.

I like Darren Pang in between in the glass, he is a cool dude.
Yeah, I like when they cut to him and you can only see him from the eyes up behind the boards...
