from CBS Pittsburgh,
Former Pittsburgh Penguins Hall of Fame coach Scotty Bowman joined Bob Pompeani on his Saturday show on The Fan to talk about the Pens’ current situation as they search for a new general manager and possibly a new head coach.
Bowman worked closely with NBC Sports NHL analyst Pierre Maguire who has been rumored to be a possible candidate for the open general manager position with the Pens.
He tells Bob that Maguire has been a candidate recently for many open positions and that he has a real desire to return to a team.
“He has a good broad knowledge of amateur hockey,” Bowman said. “But the big thing he has going for him for me is that he has a lot of connections. He has kept up with the hockey league. He is a hard worker. His knowledge of the NHL would be very high for sure.”
Bowman also told Bob that he thinks injuries played a huge role in the Pens early exit from the playoffs this year and he doesn’t think the window for this team to win another Stanley Cup has closed.
