Forward Max Pacioretty is disappointed with the Vegas Golden Knights’ outlook on the sport. In the Montreal Canadiens, he was constantly put under pressure and was held accountable for his actions, which in turn helped him better his plays and win games. But the scenario in Golden Knights is quite different from what he is accustomed to.

He played 10 seasons with the Canadiens and captained them for three, but after his trade to Golden Knights, he stated that the atmosphere here is too calm for him to get into his gear. At first, Pacioretty was relieved when his trade request was fulfilled by Vegas but he didn’t expect such a vast difference.

Max Pacioretty opened up about his experience in the Vegas Golden Knights during a recent appearance on the Raw Knuckles Podcast with former NHL stars Chris Nilan and Tim Stapleton. According to sportsnet.ca, he exclaimed, “I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately. When I first got (to Vegas), it was weird that there was like no accountability.” 

He continued, “And I’m not talking about in the team, I’m talking about like ever, you couldn’t feel pressure coming off anyone else, from the coach to the management. There was a relief when I got there but then I found myself being like I’ve got to reel this in and hold myself to a higher standard which I had always done, but maybe I got away from it when I had everyone else holding me accountable (in Montreal).”

It was for the first time in the team’s history that they failed to qualify for the playoffs last season. Pacioretty commented, “I mentioned that at the end of the year no one is really holding us accountable.” “I was kind of like we’ve got to police this thing a little better amongst each other. I don’t want to say it was a country club, but you have no one from the outside holding you accountable.” Till now, Pacioretty has recorded 194 points with 97 goals in 224 games in 4 seasons for the team.
