According to TSN, the Ottawa Senators fired former NHL on NBC analyst Pierre McGuire after one season as senior Vice President of player development.

In December, there was a reported rifted between McGuire and Senators GM Pierre Dorion. Former owner Eugene Melnyk, who passed away earlier this year, hired McGuire which caused tension between him and Dorion.

McGuire began his coaching career at his alma mater, Hobart College, in Geneva, N.Y., in 1984. He originally joined the Pittsburgh Penguins in 1991 as a scout and later served as Penguins’ assistant coach. He won the Stanley Cup with Pittsburgh in 1992. He later joined the Hartford Whalers and served as an assistant coach, assistant general manager and eventual head coach with the team.

McGuire started his broadcasting career as a colour commentator on Montreal Canadiens’ radio broadcasts in 1997 and has guested on a number of sports radio stations, including Senators radio partner TSN 1200, since. He began his television broadcasting career with TSN in 2002.

A 1983 Hobart College graduate with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English, McGuire played both hockey and baseball at Hobart.

    So which stupid broadcaster is going to hire him? I can’t believe any team is actually going to after this failed experiment but can imagine that some broadcaster is going to irritate the fans by doing so.

    never liked the guy….hated the not so subtle biases when he was on the NBC announcing crew. if you’re a national broadcast crew, you gotta stop slobbering over one team all the time and try to be more neutral for crying out loud.
