George McPhee on Knights' playoff sweep and playing with everything to prove
April 20 2018
The General Manager of the Golden Knights recounts the phone call that linked him with the expansion club that took place this time 12 months ago. "Here we are a year later..." It's never one thing that makes a team win, and players came to camp with something to prove, so the vibe was competitive from the beginning. "The rejection... that the players may have felt from other teams that exposed them was a factor," he says. "Show them they made a mistake that they didn't want you." He talks about the influence of Gerard Gallant and also reminisces about Pat Quinn and his depth, humour and ethics.
