Recap: Pierre McGuire On Daily News Live

“They are a very deep team and they become more of an omni-present offensive team with Rick Nash. Nash helps open up a lot for a guy like Hagelin, a guy like, Richards, it takes a lot of pressure off the defense because now they have quick strike offense.”

McGuire added “The New York Rangers have a legit shot at winning the Stanley Cup.”

On shot blocking, “I think with Nash, maybe you don’t have to block as many shots and they have one of the best goalies in Henrik Lundqvist. I know John Tortorella, I worked with him in TV, I coached against him, we have been friends for a long time and I know his intensity and what he wants his players to do, but at the end of the day I know that John is extremely intelligent and I sure he did a thorough breakdown of what went right and what went wrong for his team last season.
