The Montreal Canadiens have reportedly decided to name former Chicago Blackhawks assistant general manager Marc Bergevin as the replacement to Pierre Gauthier. The runner-up for the job was apparently a more well-known candidate, however, as Pierre McGuire was apparently next in line.

The Montreal Canadiens have reportedly decided to name former Chicago Blackhawks assistant general manager Marc Bergevin as the replacement to Pierre Gauthier. The runner-up for the job was apparently a more well-known candidate, however, as Pierre McGuire was apparently next in line.

McGuire, one of NBC's hockey analysts, has been reported by multiple sources as the man just missing out on moving to Montreal.

Apparently there's no reason to worry, though, as McGuire's reportedly just fine staying where he's at.

It seems like it might be difficult to campaign for a job in the same league one is paid to cover -- and then be turned down, at that -- but this likely won't effect McGuire's analysis.
