    Just wanted to rant a little bit about TSN's Pierre McGuire. His two and half hour love in for everything Washington Capital tonight was nearly unbearable. While Alex Ovechkin is a world class player and a treat to watch, he struggled tonight while another NHL star excelled. Dany Heatley was the best player on the ice at both ends of the ice yet didn't make it on Pierre's radar until the last minute of play when he prevented a potential game tying goal. Time and time again McGuire ranted about the "cyborg" that is Alex Ovechkin as he continued to slam pucks into the glass behind Brian Elliott or into the shin pads of Senators defenders.

    Elliott ended up being named McGuire's Monster but the only time I heard Pierre mention him was to once again criticize his rebound control and say he was not NHL ready.

    I am usually a fan of Mcguire's but his on air bias for the Capitals tonight was a little over the top.
    I'm glad I wasn't the only one. THis guy is more annoying that the teletubbies.

    The whole TSN gang are a bunch of negative Sens haters.

    McGuire seems to have a special hate on for the Sens.....

    Yes McGuire can be annoying, but can anyone argue that Elliot's rebound control needs alot of work. I don't remember McGuire saying that Elliot will never get better just that he still has a ways to go. McGuire was also very complimentary of Elliot's work ethic.

    As for anti Sens gang at TSN, they are just calling it like it is, there is a reason we are tied with Atlanta for 28th in a 30 team league.

    Here's my explanation:

    McKenzie is alright though. If he has a bias for any team, I haven't seen any indication of it. Him, Koulie, and Ozzy are pretty much the only sportscasters on major sports networks who don't have a masive and blatant bias against the Sens.
    Ludzig isn't cad or anything, I've just noticed a little dislike for the Sens...

    Agreed. And that goes for McGuire as well. The guy calls it like it is. Obviously that's gonna ruffle some feathers.

    Last night was horrible mind you...but he's taking a tremendous amount of flak for it 'round the Ottawa forums and talk radio etc. :D

    I agree. McGuire was hard to listen to last night. I was shocked that he named Elliott the "Monster" of the game. During the entire game he kept harping on Elliott for his rebound control. Ya, he let out some rebounds, but show me an NHL goalie who doesn't let out a rebound or two throughout the course of a game. Elliott's rebound control is amazing when compared to a goalie like Gerber, but I'd put him on par with an average NHL goalie when talking rebound control.
    The most beautiful moment of the whole game: as the play was going on, McGuire made a comment about Elliott's rebound control and as he finished his sentence, Elliott took a rocket to the chest protector and held on to it:lol!:

    That was cool LOL. Also when he was saying that the Washington bench is "so cool and calm and collected as they kill this late penalty"...and seconds later Bell scores to end it effectively.

    Good one Pierre.

    Too bad the "cause" is being taken up by Kulka and Lee "Small Time" Versage.

    McGuire calls it as he sees it and supports his argument by calling attention to examples as they happen and ignores anything that goes against his opinion.

    This is the 2nd game that he's on Elliott and he really hasn't spoken up when Elliott does well and keeps harping on his "rebound" control" and the fact that he will never be Brodeur or Roy.

    I love Duthie, guy is hilarious... and Dutchie is jacked, freaking massive muscles. Met him at the Heart and Crown after one of the world junior games, and the guy couldn't be nicer. I have a whole new respect for that man. He was talking it up with people, extremely approachable.

    I like her a lot more than Jennifer Hedger. When you see Hedger in HD you can see just how much makeup she has on, and looks kind of fake... And someone told me she was married to Sean "Big Dude" McCormick of Sportsnet, and i can't look at her the same way anymore... Just lost so much respect for her. Who calls himself the Big Dude... really.

    Dawg's Wife wrote:Proof of this was in the first period when he interviewed Ovechkin he was quick to ask how his mouth was after getting high sticked. Ovechkin replied that it hit his shield and McGuire responded with "ok, good" in a empathetic tone.

    Missing the morning show because I was so pissed, did Mcguire comment on how the 2nd goal shouldn't have been a goal that Steckel scored and how Steckel should be receiving a min 2 game suspension (similar to Ruutu) for the head shot..

    No...didn't think so.

    To be fair, the winning goal should have been called off because Foligno hooked the Washington player off the puck. His stick may not have bent like AO's did on Wichester but I couldn't believe they let it go. And 2-3 seconds later the puck's in the net.

    No, McGuire didn't touch the stick in the face to Picard. Nor did he seem to notice during the game. He must have shut his mic off to privately cheer for his team scoring.
