Search for Vancouver Giants GM circling at least 'five or six solid candidates'
May 18 2018
The owner of the Vancouver Giants, Ron Toigo, joins the hosts of the Starting Lineup to discuss the search for a new GM. "There is not a shortage of applicants, I can tell you that." It's important for a manager to understand what the WHL is about and that scouting is the most important aspect. Star power is not a factor. The Kelowna Rockets leadership is an example to emulate, he says. He dismisses the lawsuit seeking more payment for junior hockey players, who are on an "apprenticeship." It's negative energy and no one knows these young athletes like the clubs. "When they're with us, everything is taken care of."
