Default NBC's McGuire a candidate for Pittsburgh GM job


NBC Sports hockey analyst Pierre McGuire confirmed Tuesday during an appearance on Toronto's TSN radio affiliate that he is a candidate for the open general manager job with the Pittsburgh Penguins.

"Yes, I can confirm there have been discussions with Pens management," McGuire told TSN 1050.

McGuire has a history with the Penguins, serving as a scout in 1990 and as an assistant coach under Scotty Bowman when Pittsburgh won back-to-back Stanley Cup championships in 1991 and 1992.

The Penguins fired Ray Shero last month after they were eliminated by the New York Rangers in the second round of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. Pittsburgh led the best-of-7 series 3-1 before losing the next three games, including Game 7 at Consol Energy Center.

Coach Dan Bylsma was retained with team management stating his status would be evaluated by whoever was hired as the GM.

"Management, and ownership in particular, had higher expectations over the last five years for the team that hadn't been realized," McGuire said. "That's when change happens, or when they decided to make the change.

"It's been a pretty fluid process throughout the last 10 days to two weeks."

McGuire, 52, is one of at least five candidates being considered for the job, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Those believed to have received interest or who have been interviewed include Tampa Bay Lightning assistant general manager Julien BriseBois, Nashville Predators assistant GM Paul Fenton and Penguins assistant to the general manager Tom Fitzgerald. ESPN.com also reported that Carolina Hurricanes president and former GM Jim Rutherford has interviewed for the position.

Jason Botterill, who was promoted from assistant GM to interim GM when Shero was fired, is the only candidate publicly identified by the organization as a candidate for the full-time position.
