    It's a distict possibility.

    Not one WHAMMO!, minimal BIG BODY PRESENCE or ACTIVE STICK, and not a MONSTER in sight. And don't even get me started on GAP CONTROL...

    Instead, he's throwing the word SPECIAL around more than a stoned kindergarten teacher.

    "Gord, this is a special player"

    "Folks, that play was something special"


    Where's the fire? Where's the hyperbole? When the left wing lock is properly executed, and I want to be damn well informed about it in the loudest, most abrasive manner possible.

    Anyone remember last year when Kris Russel "went into that corner a boy, and came out a man"?

    That's his A material. It's not every day you hear about a boy being deflowered on national television. That's the kind of thing that makes me sit up and say "Hell yeah I'm watching hockey!".


    Could it be that Pierre is mellowing on us? Perhaps a certain Calgary defenceman's ascent to the NHL has sapped his love for the junior game?

    Or perhaps (and this is just my personal theory), Pierre McGuire is now a eunuch.

    thoughts?

    Cam Barker or Kris Russell?

    Probably Kris Russell seeing as he was 5'9 during last year's WJ. Cam Barker was his D partner.

    Agreed. He needs to go back to his bread and butter. He should not only resort to his regular hyperbole, but, they should also let him have full control over the graphics department, so that TSN can use the 60's style Batman graphics anytime there's a big hit:

    I remember it. It was one of those times that everyone in the room exchanged glances and started snickering.

    I don't think he's been neutered as he's still man-crushing quite a bit. Maybe he's on medication? :dunno:

    He is just teasing us right now, all the old standbys will come soon enough. The love fest with Steve Downie has already started. How many times did he tell us something "special" about Steve yesterday?

    Maybe after all his wrong predictions about the Habs, especially Huet, he's realized it's better to call players special than to make any real in depth analysis of them and risk being wrong.

    Cam Russell played for the Hull Olympiques and the Chicago Blackhawks way back when.

    Or whenever he does a game where Radek Bonk does something stupid, we can use this when he inflicts pain upon his ego. Thus making a statement where he rambles until he exclaims "RADEK BONK" and then we don't have to listen to the rest.

    My favorite Pierre McGuire moment came when Gord Miller mentioned the score in a Phoenix Suns playoff game. This prompted a wild "STEVE NASH" from Pierre. All I could think of was McGuire pumping both his fists ala "STEVE HOLT" from Arrested Development.

    But that boy-to-man comment is pretty damn close.

    After watching the Canada US game, according to him there are at least 20 players from that game who are going to be extremely special players in the nhl for a very long time.

    What a joke he is.

    SPECIAL players make SPECIAL plays says Pierre...:)
     
  24. On the first telecast of a Black Hawks game on TSN this season, he called Duncan Keith "special". I think sometimes he uses it with different meanings.

    Pierre, who I think is the best in the business, does come across being manic sometimes. He has a lot of highs and lows. Sometimes he talks in a very quiet monotone way and it is a little frightening.

    Isn't this the guy who selected Hudler as his rookie of the year candidate?
