All George McPhee

from Chuck Gormley of CSN Washington,

Earlier this week McPhee met with the media to discuss this year’s team and the decisions he faces as training camp draws to a close.

On recent trade talk:

It’s just starting to pick up. I had a couple calls already. Things have tightened up in the league under the cap system. It’s been hard to make trades the last few years. We’ll see what happens. I don’t know that we’ll actually make a trade....

On what he would deem a successful season:

Well, I would call winning the Stanley Cup successful. The objective always is to make the playoffs and give yourself a chance. We’d love to go deep and we’d love to win a Cup. I read in the Washington Post where one of the Nats, it might have been [Ryan] Zimmerman, said it’s not easy being good. And he was right. We’ve been a real good team and we’d like to continue to be a real good team and give ourselves a chance to win. I think we have a good team with good people and we’ll battle like crazy to make the playoffs and then hope something good happens. As a manager that’s all you can do, keep putting good teams on the ice and hope you have some good fortune in the playoffs.
