I seem to recall Chuck Fletcher being among the top 3-4 candidates. I read somewhere a reference to Shero not having a huge ego and then a comment about how he hired Fletcher as assistant GM, who also was a serious candidate for the job.

As for Pierre McGuire, if memory serves, he was Shero's first choice for assistant GM (he and Pierre are big buddies), but McGuire wasn't interested. McGuire has been looking for that GM job. Shero tried to sell him on being an assistant as a stepping stone, Pierre said 'no thanks', and Shero then hired Fletcher.
