It's not like Savard and Molson are watching Pierre McGuire telecasts to see if he would make a good GM.

If he is a candidate he will be interviewed extensively. And if the management group decides that his plan going forward is the best one, he will be hired.

You need to seperate the TV personality from him as a person. It isn't the same thing.

If he is a serious candidate he will be asked to give a very detailed plan which spans from the type of team to build to player development to injury protocol to cap management. In fact, most potential GMs likely have this plan prepared in advance for potential job openings.

If his is the best, why not hire him? Because you don't like how he analyzes games?
Because he's one of the biggest blowhards there is. I don't even know why his name is being discussed. I understand people have heard of him, but give me a proven GM, or give the job to Timmons. Pierre just makes zero sense from every angle accept for the publicity of it.
