    if PM was hired, his first task would be to fire and replace MB.....so they wouldn't be working together anyway

    The article mention kids that should play like Robert Petrovicky and Robert Smyth. Can you really blame him for not using terrible players?

    Earlier in the day Francois Gagnon was talking with 690 about possibilities for GM and President for the Habs. He suggested that Mcguire would be a good guy for President. Just wanted to point out it wasn't his own suggestion :laugh:

    Why? So he can tell us where the best tapioca pudding is in Lulea, Sweden? All he knows are names of college coaches and tidbits about small European cities.

    This president crap is a red herring.

    We don't need a new president, we need a new GM.

    If the point of the president is to veto and block the bad moves the GM makes, then your problem is you have a bad GM!

    Okay, we'll skip that then.

    Either way, still a clown and still want nothing to do with this guy.

    There is a reason McGuire hasn't had an NHL job for 20+ years. Best to leave alone.

    You want to have confident people in your hockey operations and certainly in your President, GM , coach etc.

    But there is a difference between having confidence and an ego so beyond that it is detrimental to your decision making. I fear MB is afflicted by this and I certainly dont want anybody else added to this organization with that problem. Seems clear Pierre has this issue,

    Sure, 2 guys like this would be at logger heads and come close to blows, and the media would have great fun. We dont need anymore crap than we have now.

    So no.

    Keep dreaming McGuire. I admire your self confidence in yourself but you will not be a NHL GM or President.

    I don't get the hate for Pierre, I'd vote to have him in the organization any day.

    For what reason?

    Because he's propped up on the radio every day with questions that are positioned in a way that he can never be wrong?

    Mr. Hindsight. I can look at the past & tell you what shouldn't have been done. So, I am also throwing my hat into the ring.

    I think Pierre would have some of the same issues as Patrick Roy.

    They’d want to be FAR more involved in the hockey ops than they’re supposed to be as presidents.

    Pretty sure Shanahan is very involved in hockey ops with the Leafs.
