If they keep him out of the locker room he could do alright.
He showed his pedo side in the Boston/Carolina game tonight.. Right before a commercial (or maybe intermission?) break, they showed this boy, maybe about 7-8 years old, shirtless in the stands, dancing, a Bruins logo painted on his body (like chest to stomach). And he said something like "the little guy's having fun!" and something about his pecs, then said he was a monster. The other announcer said something about waiting till they get older, to which Pierre just sorta laughed. It all happened kind of fast so I didn't catch all of it exactly. They showed the kid again later on too, still shirtless and dancing.

I wonder if he ever realizes the innuendo behind half the stuff he says.

Chuck Fletcher is reportedly going to be the new GM by Friday.

Seems like a solid choice. And perhaps the Cliffy connection will make Minnesota a friendly trading partner for us at some point down the road.

Good choice imo. Better than McGuire. Can't wait to see what happens with Gaborik now.

I won't say it's not a good choice, considering the team he's currently employed by is in the Eastern Final. But people should temper their expectation that this means we're automatic trading partners with them.

Although it's typical that new GMs try to get taken by an unfair deal I doubt Cliff would be too willing to rip off his son in a deal.

I never suggested anything about being trading partners with Minnesota. I simply want to see how he handles Gaborik.

Cliff is not our GM. He does not really have any significant role with the Leafs anymore and if I remember correctly his contract with the Leafs ends soon. So Cliff wont be making any deals with his son in Minnesota. IF any deals are made with Minnesota its all Brian Burke not Cliff Fletcher.

No, I know. I was commenting on how others did. I can read, no worries.

Posters are dreaming about proposals as we speak, it's only a matter of time before we get Minny's first

Cliff is still a consultant and sits with Burke in the press box from time to time. That's gotta count for something like "Hey Brian, don't rip off my son, kay?"

A guy like Cliff is valuable to run ideas by if your Burke.

If he agrees with your thought, you'll know you should probably re-evaluate it.

Thats nothing major. Cliff will not be making any trades it will be Brian Burke making all the deals.

look at you, all confident after its been announced.
never say anything before the fact that might come back and bite you but be the first to bump a thread with a 'i told you so'. congrats on knowing JFJ didn't get the position.

Pat Quinn too! If he comes back into the NHL it will be as a coach not a GM!
