Pierre McGuire’s farewell picture of analytics in hockey is a reminder of what to disregard – The Athletic

The smart move when I heard the news of Pierre McGuire’s super-soft landing on NBC – the amiable one maybe – would have been to say nothing.

After 10, 15, 25 years of windmill hunting, McGuire caught one. Courtesy of Eugene Melnyk and the Ottawa Senators, he’s a hockey man in the front office again. The job title, Vice President of Player Development, is no mean feat. He’s not a general manager since Pierre Dorion is currently in Ottawa and McGuire almost went to Pittsburgh not so long ago, but hey what can you do? Maybe it works. He followed his luck. There is something to be said for that.

Good luck in your future endeavors and namaste or whatever.
