Apparently he interviewed for the Montreal GM position. Oh, please let him go to Montreal, run them into the ground some more, and get off of our televisions.

Pierre Mcguire is really Mr. Garrison and he's mad at NBC cause they wont let him bring Mr. Hat to the games !!

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

F-him

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)?

I felt like Cartman at the end of the Scott Tenorman episode, where hes licking scotts tears of Unfathomable Sadness...

McGuire sounded SO defeated at the end of Game 2.. like his toy broke and his mom wouldn't buy him a new one...

LOVE when hes like that, so satisfying

Oh yes, the NJ Devils no longer trap even tho we've forechecked (or at least tried to) for the past decade. Thanks Pierre :rolleyes:

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.

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.

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.

His "expert analysis" is just obvious sh!t that anyone who's watched hockey for a couple of games would know. But his comments in the second and parts of the third bordered on the ridiculous. It is brutal listening to him without Doc to bring some levity and reality to the broadcast.

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!!!"

Fortunately the Sunday NBC games no longer feature Pierre and Milbury sparring it out at intermissions, like they did last season. That was just brutal to listen to.

He was bad today. If you can get around his creepy weird "cool dad" act, he normally isn't. But it was as if he had to be the Iraqi Information Minister today for Comcast.

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. :rolleyes:

"A lot o' people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch o' unconnected incidents 'n things. They don't realize that there's this, like, lattice o' coincidence that lays on top o' everything. Give you an example; show you what I mean: suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness."
