He gives praise to every young player on a given team, as if being young makes you inherently great at hockey. The only veterans that gets praise from PM is Nik Linstrom and Rafalski. He hates veterans for some reason. A good GM needs to be indifferent, whereas PM is loud n proud about every single opinion, like Don Cherry. That attitude is great for entertaining television, but not for negotiating with other GM's about a trade.
If PM was in charge right now, he'd trade all of our players away for 5th rounders (including Iggy) because he thinks that great players are young undrafted players, and every other GM in the league would be laughing. I don't want another Brian Burke or Don Cherry in this league grabbing a camera to express every little thought.
You bring the passion but do you seriously think a professional like Pierre behaves like his on camera persona in every situation? Do you think he screams WHAT A MONSTER when he brings out his member to take a leak? Do you think he goes into Tokarski-mode when he kisses his wife?
