The thing about Pierre McGuire is that he gets overexcited about the most simplest plays. And he calls any good player "a monster performer!" And he does this almost every five minutes. It's actually quite amusing.

You gotta here him at the NHL Entry Draft. Pretty much a giant suck-up to every team and an instant expert on every player.

I think he'd be Notorious AP's idol.

Me too.

I've listened to him on a couple of Canucks games on TSN and the first thing I noticed was that he talked about each team evenly, he complimented each side evely, and he was an exciting guy to listen to. I don't mind he gets excited easily because that's what we need MORE OF, guys getting EXCITED FOR HOCKEY and BIG PLAYS, there's too many commentators that are boring and un-excited, Pierre's good.

I think he may be a little biased (when the Russian player went down, it was a crime, but when Downey did it, it was Downey's "skill") but then again, on a Canadian channel in a Canadian game, do we really need unbiased announcing?

:flagcanada:

I love how TSN denied the Russian Hockey Federation people the tape for the goal... and said so on live TV. Brilliant!

...and the "Double Dion" call ranks among some of the greatest calls in the history of sports. The fact that McGuire gets so excited during the game is priceless and makes the game worth watching. Who was it in the third period who "became a man" when he fended off the Russian player in the corner in the Canadian end and retained possession of the puck? That was hilarious.

I think Pierre McGuire is a good hockey pundit, as many others. Hockey is a show these days, his excitement seems sincere.

In my opinion, sports journalists are the most biaised of all journalists. There're all come from somewhere. The fact that HNIC is pro-Leafs is not bad in itself, the problem is when they try to justify it.

Here in the beautiful State of Quebec, sport medias always complaint about the control of the Toronto media mafia, but they're not better because they always talk of the HABS...

Go Nordiques Go! :flagcanada:

It's so true, it's like when theres a goal he'll go on praising the backup goalie, saying if it werent for him opening the door to the bench the goal wouldn't have happened.

Can't be more true. I can't stand watching a game with french commentators when it is shown in english. Although McGuire can be really excited sometimes, it really is color commentary.

I did find his call on Russell really funny! ^_^

I think I remember him saying that once, though I don't think he was being really serious about it.
