Q & A With Pierre McGuire

from the Minnesota Wild,
Pierre McGuire, a former NHL head coach and long-time hockey analyst, was in town on Wednesday, serving as color analyst for the TSN broadcast of the Wild vs. the Canucks. In addition to TSN, McGuire provides insight for NBC NHL broadcasts, Outdoor Life Network NHL broadcasts, and serves as a Sports Illustrated Insider. He will also be covering the NHLers in Italy during the 2006 Winter Olympics for NBC Sports. After just one week of regular season play, what has jumped out at you most about the “New NHL?” The two-line passes and the odd-man rushes. The infrequency of whistles. The ability for teams to come back, especially in the third period. The ebb and flow of the game is tremendous. I think the speed is what impresses me the most.
