    Re: Runours: Pierre McGuire possible new GM

    I think he'd do well as a GM. As annoying as he can be broadcasting, he clearly knows a lot about hockey.

      It will be really interesting to see how he performs if so. If he gets the Pittsburgh job, I don't expect him to be very active. He should be able to build a really solid prospect cupboard mind you.

        Isn't this every off-season's most popular rumour?

          It's hard to say exactly how he will do as a GM. I'd imagine most/every GM knows just as much as he does, but is not on television and when they are, they're more soft-spoken and quiet. I liked him as a broadcaster. He's quite quirky but knows how to have fun yet be serious and deliver good information at times. I like Ferarro, too, although he seems to try too hard to get a little mad and be overly negative.

            Apparently Rutherford is also in the mix.

                Rutherford probably is the better choice. McGuire would make a great assistant to him though.

                  Oh yeah, I realised reading that article that Bill Guerin is moving up the GM ladder. That's pretty cool, considering he retired quite recently.

                    I'm with Josh. McGuire should not get a head GM job. He was only ever an assistant GM for about a year and a half, and now you're going to suddenly throw a GM job at him? Although I do think his creativity, personality, and media connections could end up coming in very handy to certain teams at some point, so I'd like to see him given another assistant GM or director of player personnel type job and see what he could do with it.
