i don't like the guy on a personal level and i think a lot of people would lose respect for us if we hired him, but he has the hockey IQ that i feel we need to go forward to build a system around lundqvist.
I can appreciate the fact that people are trying to figure this out, I just don't think there is much to ponder. McGuire would be a terrible choice. Terrible. There are far better options available.
