QuoteIn 15 years of covering the NHL, we had never seen a coach so universally disrespected and disliked within his own organization.

McGuire fancied himself two parts Scotty Bowman and one part Bob Johnson. It turned out to be a superhuman leap of faith on his part.

At 32, McGuire was the youngest head coach in the NHL. He never had been a head coach at any level. And it showed. He is book smart and X's and O's smart, but often not people smart.

Aside from all that, I really wonder why this is necessary. Dorian seems to be doing a pretty good job assembling prospects so a high profile front office hire only makes sense if you have an ego-driven owner who wants to be in the news and overrates his own intelligence and...

I think I just figured out how this happened.

Pure speculation on this guy's part but wouldn't that be something if they push out Dorion and replace him with McGuire.

I mean I was kinda joking about the coup thing but it really wouldn't be that surprising. Reports are this was a Melynk hire, not a Dorion hire which is a little strange/unconventional. And while this is somewhat true for most hockey ops people Pierre McGuire clearly has dreams of becoming a GM and won't be content with whatever random title they threw at him here for very long.

Ranked 40th on Bob McKenzie's draft board.

edit: sorry, that was from his mid-season rankings. He was 29th on his final ones. The Athletic's rankings had him 45th.

They just kept picking Tyler Klevan over and over again

I think he's done a pretty good job considering his operational limitations.

Declaring the rebuild over after getting Chabot, Stuetzle, Sanderson, and... Batherson? Is a bit... okay.

Literally the only time people bring this player up is to dunk on the trade.
