I used to be on the Pierre McGuire hate bandwagon, but stuff like that is great. He is one of a kind, and at least he's not a dick like Millbury.

Pierre knows a lot of hockey, but his downfall is he has a very bad tv personality. It just doesn't work.

The weekly Pierre is weird thread...

The guy's just passionate, too passionate sometimes. Say what you will, he knows his stuff, he is respected in hockey circles, he gets to get his "weird on" on national TV, and here we sit, typing away on a hockey message board.

In my opinion he's very entertaining and knowledgeable, so I'd say he's pretty good analyst/colour man. Yeah, there're some weird or awkward things he says, some anecdotes or pieces of information are unnecessary, but you can tell he's really passionate and he knows his hockey. Colorful personality, he's ok methinks.

He was the asst. coach at Babson under Steve Stirling but also coached squash at Babson College at the same time. Word has it he has family contacts with Scotty Bowman and hence his contact with Pittsburgh. Any thought that he was a so-called pro in Europe is in name only especially if anybody actually watched him handle the puck !

Although probably one of the games biggest overachievers you have to give him credit for " learning" the game as a non-player and also getting player respect..
I'm surprised that Pierre McGuire did not play in the NHL. Or the AHL. He talks a good talk.

Yes, where do you think the source picture of Pierre holding Crosby came from?

He's alright in small doses but eventually he gets annoying. After 5 games of listening to him in the caps habs series I had him on mute for the final two. He definitely knows a lot about the game I just wish he would tone it done a bit he's to over the top a lot of the time.

I'll give him some credit though his commentary can make games I normally wouldn't tune into interesting.

So what is it?

Did Pierre grow up in NJ or Mon? If he did in fact grow up in Canada why was he born in the US...that is not common.

Further his name, Pierre is French but McGuire Irish?

He's born in NJ but is actually from Montreal. People being born in one country and growing up in another isn't all that uncommon

He knows his stuff that's for sure but he just needs to tone it down and I don't just mean the voice. Trim the fat on the useless knowledge. There's nothing I'd rather be doing than watching or playing hockey and sometimes I feel like Im way too into it. That being said almost every time I hear Pierre I'm just like "dude seriously get a life".
