Pierre McGuire Talking Hockey

from Adrian Dater of All Things Avs,

Anyway, the Montreal station today had an interesting guest appearance from hockey analyst Pierre McGuire. Yeah, Pierre is a little excitable at times, but he is a tremendous guy and knows more about hockey in his left index finger than I do in my entire brain.

So my ears always pipe up when he’s asked about what’s going on in the game. When he came on today, I hit the “record” button on the TuneInRadio app (yes, that’s a cool feature about it) and will transcribe some of it for you good citizens here.

First, his opinion on how things stand in the lockout:

The questioner, Mitch Melnick, asked if the current proposal by the NHL is a framework to get something done within the next 7-10 days:

“I do believe that, and I’ll tell you why: Usually when Gary Bettman says this is our last, best offer, he says that publicly. He did that the last time. Unless something’s changed in the last four hours, you’ve never heard him say this is a last, best offer. Once he says that, he’s not messing around. But right now, he’s opened up the ability for both sides to negotiate off this original document. I truly believe that you can get something done off this document. Talking to players last night, talking to management people this morning, I truly believe they can get something done off this document.”

This is not a compliment.

“McGuire did criticize the fact that the Phoenix Coyotes are still in the NHL, which is a drag on revenues:
“I’ve told you this a million times – that team shouldn’t be there. The building was built in the wrong place. That team should have been moved.””

Someone should tell gary
