One of my favorite quotes in that 24/7 show is where George McPhee is talking about their losing streak and says you can't be reactionary in his position and in regards to people who criticize him, "if they knew anything about hockey then they would be in the business". I immediately thought of message boards and blogs.

Even Mike Milbury got Pierre Maguire to shut his piehole on NBC once when Pierre was ripping his torrid trading history with the Islanders and Milbury replied "get the job first, Pierre. Then you can criticize me".
And with this post a moderator should close this thread. Well said.
