    The good news is they caught it early. Best wishes to Pierre who I hope Double Dion's that cancer away.

    NBC analyst Pierre McGuire remembers the late Hall of Fame coach Pat Burns imploring him and others in the hockey coaching community to schedule regular colonoscopies. Now he will be the guy reminding coaches of the importance of prostate exams.

    The announcement that McGuire has been diagnosed with prostate cancer was made before NBC Sports Network's "Wednesday Night Rivalry" game between the Minnesota Wild and Chicago Blackhawks.

    “I had no symptoms at all,” McGuire, 56, told USA TODAY Sports. “If I wouldn’t have had a physical, I would have kept going and I never would have known, because nothing was bothering me.”

    McGuire said his doctor Michael Cohen noted an irregularity in his PSA screening during his yearly physical at Columbia Presbyterian and subsequent tests revealed a cancerous lesion. He worked the Blackhawks-New York Rangers game on Jan. 3, and then had the tumor removed the following morning.


    Doctors determined McGuire has stage 1 cancer, and no chemotherapy is currently planned. McGuire expects to return to NBC next month for the Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.

    I was thinking he'll just creep the cancer out but your cure works just as well.
