“How do you follow someone again?” (Photo credit: Bridget Samuels)
For those who keep asking who next coach of Washington Capitals is going to be, you can now direct your questions straight to the man making the decision: @GMMcPhee — better known as Capitals General Manager George McPhee. The Twitter account was recently created and Caps PR confirmed to us it is indeed his.
Despite many NHL players being on Twitter, including 12 Caps, McPhee is only the fourth GM to create an account, joining Brian Burke of Leafs, Mike Gillis of the Canucks, and Scott Howson of the Blue Jackets. As you might have guessed, Burke, Gillis, and Howson don’t reveal much on the site. Burke’s tweets are mostly messages of congratulations or thanks, while Gillis and Howson haven’t posted in months.
McPhee always plays his cards close to the chest, so it will be interesting to see what information he chooses to share with fans on social media, if any. At the very least, we look forward to his Twitter wars with Ritch Winter.
Give him a follow here. Perhaps we can help him find a Twitter background that’s a little more personable. Here’s our suggestion.
