NHL Insider Pierre McGuire

The PM Team w/Poni & Mueller
Monday, April 22nd
We play for Pierre the clip of Jim Rutherford criticizing his team after the season and Pierre says there were many factors that ended their season, but it boiled down to the fact that the Islanders were the better team with a higher rate of urgency than the Penguins.  Does that mean they need a major shakeup?  Pierre says they need a top-6 winger, another defenseman and a more consistent version of Matt Murray.  Asked about Kessel's future based on his comments after the season, Pierre says Kessel is an enigma and it's always hard to tell what he's thinking.  Talking about Patric Hornqvist's future, Pierre says he still has the passion and energy for the game, but he's no longer a top-6 forward.  Looking at other players from the Pens series, Pierre says he didn't see the same intensity from Evgeni Malkin that we've gotten used to.  We wrap things up with Pierre finding about his ties to Kevin Colbert and doing some scouting work for the Steelers.
