Recent statements by Max Passeurity, who flayed his former organization, the Vegas Golden Knights, by invoking the lack of accountability of players made his former fellow Pro-Am Gagné-Bergeron attendees react Tuesday at the Videotron Center.

Jacques Eichel hesitated a little when interviewed by reporters. The Golden Knights’ Star Center initially said Pacioretty’s comments were taken out of context, before providing further details.
“I think his statement was misinterpreted,” Eshel said. I know Max and he was a captain on our team. I don’t think he meant there was no accountability. I think sometimes when you play in a place like Vegas you can lose track of the season a little bit. The feeling is different there. I think we all need to be responsible in the room.”
“If you don’t win the Stanley Cup, there are always things to improve,” he continued.
For his part, Jonathan Marchesault also argued that the former Canadian captain’s words were taken out of context, as well as noting that he maintained a good relationship with Pasurietti.
It’s a shame, according to Florey
Goalkeeper Marc-Andre Fleury, who featured in the first Golden Knights season in 2017, weighed his words, as well as hesitating for a few seconds, before making his comments.
“When I was there, my goal was to finish winning,” Florey hinted […]. It must have been a coincidence that this happened after I left. It’s a very good team, and they have a lot of good players. It’s a shame to see how the team turned out.
“There are a lot of big names that were there in the beginning and they left. The chemistry was really good and everyone worked for each other. [Mais] Every season they let three or four guys go.”
