    Pierre has been involved in the media and detached from management for too long. And he has a bad reputation based on what he actually says...

    For example: "Mete will get "destroyed" in the NHL"

    Definitely outside of the box thinking but not the guy I want running our team.

    Ok...

    How does that change what I said?

    The leafs have adopted a committee approach. They have Shanahan, the GM, lamoriello and even Babcock.

    We literally have no knowledge whatsoever of how involved Shanahan is.

    Is he making decisions? Is he just offering input and insight?

    Patrick Roy and Pierre McGuire would probably be FAR more involved. I wouldn’t put it past them to act like the GM. Which is exactly what you don’t want.

    1. Roy >>> McGuire. Comparing Roy to McGuire is not fair to Roy IMO.

    2. Roy can create a team like Shanahan has done. Shanahan is a major part of the strategy going on with the Leafs behind the scenes.

    Like I said, they’d have similar issues IMO.

    Their jobs would be to preside, and I feel like they want to manage.

    I’m happy you think Roy would be a good candidate.

    I, after actually having him be a part of my team for 3 years, 100% wholeheartedly would not want him as a President.

    He’s a far more ideal candidate as a GM than a President. Still doesn’t mean I’d hire him as a GM. But I think it’s a much better situation for his needs.

    Although Pierre McGuire has a French first name due to his mother being French, Pierre doesn't speak good French if at all and the new President of the Habs must be fluently bilingual.

    As much as he aches and yearns for a GM job, no team has hired him in that capacity and I doubt any team would hire him to lord over their GM.

    Couldn't agree more. Honestly had he been hired, I don't think we would be in such position right now with such a small prospect pool

    No he never suggested it
    He was answering a question asked by Melnick
    And guess what, our BOZO GM traded PK anyways

    And I'd be willing to bet, McGuire would have gotten a better return for PK put in Bergevin's position

    He's wrong often as well, I don't see how him being right or wrong on radio should impede his coming back into management.

    It doesn't...i'm trying to understand why you or anyone think he's suited to come back into management?

    What is it about him that makes you think he would be successful?

    How has he benefited from playing in world juniors? how has that manifested itself?

    He's basically the same exact player he was before he left.

    If he is the hockey genius that he, and some others, seem to think he is, why has he not found a position in the decades since he left Pittsburgh? Maybe his ego? Maybe he does not know as much as he thinks? He would also likely meddle too much in trades etc so double no for me.

    His press conferences would be gold lolol he would go off on a long long rant to some simple question and there would be like 2 questions lol

    I would rather someone else but if he can be held in check he could be a big picture kind of guy but I dont know how he would react to not having the deciding power of being GM .

    No kidding. Because we brought him back up. He should’ve been sent immediately down to juniors after. Instead he’s back playing in a toxic environment on a bad team.

    How about they just "promote" Bergevin to President and then he can fire himself as GM?
