Unfortunately for Murray though, being a GM means MUCH more than drafting players. He tried to make a splash on UFA day (July 1st) two years in a row. I was quite impressed with who he was able to get : Kovalev and freakin' Gonchar!!! but the truth is... it didn`t work out...
About McGuire as GM : On a short term, I believe he`s the perfect GM for a rebuild. He's quite knowledgeable on junior players. I say bring him in on short term to help us rebuild. We just can`t fix this team right now. Time to sell and rebuild
If Melynk just wanted a guy that drafts well for the short term, then I would suggest he would be better off keeping Murray. The ONLY thing McGuire knows is his the sound of his own voice.
If anyone listened to him or his predictions, they would realize just how often he is wrong.
