    We all know how much Pierre was hyping Parise at the draft that year but even at the worlds he can't seem to give it up.During the game yesterday did you catch his little quip along the lines of "how do you like Nillson being picked before Parise now gord?" Funny stuff....i don't disagree with Pierre here at all as i think Parise was picked too late and is better then Nillson also but it's just great cartoons having Pierre throw that stuff in here at the world junior games.....makes for great entertainment i think.I'm really loving that stuff

    This is kind of unrelated, but I hate the cheap shots McGuire takes at the Penguins organization.

    I mean, lots of people do it, and most of the time it's warranted. McGuire just doesn't shut up about his former employer, though, and now he's getting Miller in on it too.

    He never shuts up about the Naslund deal. That's like the first thing he tells his wife in the morning each and every day.

    Yesterday he was ragging on about the Russian coach being a dumbass for not putting Ovechkin with Malkin late in the game, then Miller pointed out that they just don't have chemistry, sometimes it happens, and then Pierre said something like: "Lemieux and Jagr were said not to have chemistry, but they developed some when they had to" so I don't think that he takes that many cheapshots at the Pens...

    Personally I like Pierre. He has some freakin personality, he isnt a zombie calling the game.

    I noticed he took a shot at Dixon today who is a Pens pick. Not really that big of deal, tho.

    he seems a little sour on the habs too.... he did colour for them on the radio side and he seems to have a grudge there.

    As for Nilsson, I wasn't impressed with him.... does he ever pass the puck? I'm just asking because I've only seen him play against canada

    He's not too fond of the Maple Leafs either.

    But I don't care.

    Why can't this guy shut up already? He's not "God's gift" to hockey. And the Isles weren't the only team who passed up on Parise.

    He's become more and more annoying.

    I really enjoy Pierre MaGuire. I think he's highly entertaining, and frankly, he DOES know his stuff inside out. He's a smart cookie, and while he does get a little over-excited about things (in comparison to other colour commentators), I have no problem with someone being passionate about their job.

    And frankly, he's right about Nilsson, who has sucked a big, long, cold, hard one this tournament, and it seems to be, as far as I can tell, not due to lack of talent, but effort. I mean, who knows, maybe's he's hurting from something, but he's just not hustling hard on the ice it seems.

    I also like MaGuire. You can say what you want about him, but he does know what he is talking about and the excitement in his voice excites me when watching a game.

    I like Pierre but then again, he loves anything NJ does. He raves about the Parise and Zajac picks and I'm sure he will rave about Vrana today :)

    He is very close to the prospects side of hockey, and therefore he acknowledges when a team has made good selections. Apart from being a coach, he has also had a lot to do with scouting, so when he sees a prospect he really likes, being a commentator he has the forum to discuss what he feels while we are all listening. Frankly, I enjoy what he has to say, especially when discussing WJC and the future of prospects and how they will fill in to their NHL teams.
