George McPhee Hired As Special Advisior

Been writing about this since minority owners were announced.

McPhee looking past his Rangers past, and mostly long term failure in Washington did not leave the Caps with a reputation as someone who worked well with other agents which seems the opposite of Snow.

I know it's been reported Snow/McPhee are friends.

Win or lose, Snow's been exemplary as he keeps negotiations quiet/classy. Even the people who do not sign or resign here make it clear they like being part of this organization which says a lot.

Still this is a win business, and Garth Snow is paid to win, no matter how many smart contracts he signs or trades he makes.

Tavares said it best:

“We really haven’t accomplished a whole lot.”

This could also be a sign Snow is going to wear only the President's hat or moved into that role which in terms of business seems to be Barclay's/Mr Yormark's role. No idea if this changes Doug Weight's title also as a senior advisor.
