George McPhee Visits With Fox 5's Sean McAllister

The Golden Knights' GM spoke about what agents have told him about players' interest in playing in Vegas.

It's almost like getting to know your new neighbors.

Except in this case, your neighbors are the first residents in the history of your city to be launching a major league, professional sports franchise.

This was the case for Fox 5's Sean McAllister on January 9, when he had Golden Knights general manager George McPhee in studio as a guest.

Among the topics that McAllister and McPhee discussed was the prospect of Vegas' reputation amongst NHL players who may eventually call the city home. Or in keeping with the whole neighbors theme, the Fox crew's potential future neighbors.

"It has been amazing across the board," McPhee said "We've been overwhelmed with applicants for every position. Broadcast, the number of people we've heard from in our business, and other businesses, of people that have good jobs in broadcasting, seem to want to come work for us.

"We've been overwhelmed by the number of people that want to come here.

"We have young players whose agents are calling us, saying 'he's a college free agent, he's a junior free agent, he'd love to come there. We've heard from other NHL players' agents saying to keep an eye on this guy.

"It's been pretty exciting."
