I don’t know if George McPhee is a golfer, or if he even owns a set of clubs, but early this offseason I’d urge him borrowing a set of clubs if need be and setting up a round out on the links with this guy:
The thing about golf played by buddies, even when it’s played badly, is that it affords hours of uninterrupted and if needed frank conversation. War stores and warm reminisciences get swapped out on the links. World-weariness can be escaped on tee boxes and greens.
I wouldn’t presume to dictate an agenda for such an outing between our GM and legend. But I think they should hit the links together, have a couple of beers, and talk some puck. There are worse ways to spend a summer day than in the company of a game 7 hero, no?
