    The numbers have been crunched, and the votes are in.

    Pierre McGuire's official man-crush this year will be...

    *Drumroll*

    Jonathan Toews.


    "Like vintage Bryan Trottier, with a shot like Brett Hull"

    Phaneuf's shoes are big ones to fill, but I have confidence that Toews can be that monster. Whammo!

    Ha!

    Last week during the Canadiens-Coyotes game on TSN, he was going on how excited he is to see Jeff Toews (Tay-ves). Guess it was true.

    McGuire has wisely chosen a player who I believe is eligable for 3 years at the WJC's.

    I have no doubt we will all form a deep resentment for Toews by the time he steps on to an NHL rink

    You know what's really funny about all of this-----its true. He mentions Phaneuf every bloody chance he gets.

    "Hey Gord, did you know that Brent Sutter's brother is gm of Calgary??? He picked Dion Phaneuf, hugged him and now Phaneuf for team Canada baybee"

    Every time somebody gets rocked----"Hey Gord, do you remember when Dion hit Olesz and got a major??? That was because the head was the first point of contact and in international rules that means a penalty"

    And yes, it is Toews for sure. We'll be so sick of hearing about Toews that you'll want to scream. Also we'll be sick of him saying---"Hey Gord, did you know that Downie is right on the fence??? He's got to be careful. Sutter's got to keep him on a short leash"

    I swear he's said downie is on the fence 50 times already.

    I'm so tired I mentally skipped the 'w' and read that as:

    "Wham! Wham! Wham! It's a Triple Toes!"

    A little amusing I thought.

    As much as Pierre is a bit over-the-top, I have to give a shout-out to Gord Miller. He's a pleasure to listen to, and from what I've seen/heard is very objective.

    Gord is one of the best play-by-play men in hockey. Bar none.

    Absolutely.
     
  14. That call he has on a goal, you know, SCAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAARES, can be a little much in a high scoring game.

    Only fault.

    This is only the beginning....Mercy...
     
  16. I beg to differ. Pierre carries that tandem, give Gord to the US and bring back a real play by play man in Paul.

    Fear not...once Parise starts showing a pulse at the NHL level, rest assured PM will be back on that backwagon. It'll be ParisePariseParise until the Apocalypse.

    "That delayed offside was ALL Parise, Gord!!"

    As for Toews, next game I'm going to have a drinking contest; one beer for every time Pierre mentions the word 'special' in relation to Toews. I'm sure I'll be projectile puking by the 2nd intermission...

    I don't know if he shoots as thunderous a Hull, he does have a great shot though, but the Trottier comparison is pretty good. I've always thought a grittier Brad Richards. As for PM, I wish that he would just act like himself instead of wooping it up for the TV. He's alot better on the Fan 590.

    I think it just makes his job easier. He can focus on just one player and doesn't need to make observations about anyone else. Perhaps that will change once he gets familiar with the players?

    I'm thanking Jesus on December 25th this year that Toews isn't a bone-crushing hitter, or Maguire might start talking about that Howe guy.

    If McGuire is gonna have a man crush on anyone it's gonna be Bourdon, McGuire always goes for the hard nosed guys who like to hit, and hit hard (TooToo, Phaneuf, etc). I can see it already.."_____ just got Bourdoooowwwnnnedddd"

    Don't worry, once you think you're at the end of your rope with all the Toews talk... Pierre will EL-KABONG you with some of his man-lust for Pogge or Cogliano.

    Worst part about his love for Cogs... I'm an Oiler fan... WHAMMO!
