“As the general manager, it’s my job to build a successful franchise, from the coaching staff to the players,” he says.
Grant says he didn’t want internal conflicts to hurt the team, so he made the difficult decision to resign from the team he helped rebuild.
“There’s tough changes that need to be made, and the executive wasn’t willing to do them,” he said.
For their first season back Grant says they did all right, with a few issues with player commitment. Things he saw as needing change were being closer to players for practice in Halifax, and more aggressive fundraising for the season. Last season costs amounted to $35,000 for the team.
However Grant wishes the team the good luck for the upcoming season, and says he will be in the stands to watch the games.
The Wild ended the season with six wins and 23 losses.
