Jonathan Marchessault recently took a shot at his former team when he signed with the Nashville Predators. Now, Kelly McCrimmon has responded with comments.

Marchessault made waves in the NHL by signing a five-year deal with the Nashville Predators, leaving the Vegas Golden Knights.
Marchessault, who won the Conn Smythe Trophy and the Stanley Cup with the Golden Knights, was one of the few remaining "Misfits" from their 2017 expansion draft. In a statement to TSN, he expressed his disappointment with Vegas.
Marchessault to @TSN_Sports on leaving Vegas- "The tough part is there wasn't really a decent offer on the table. I don't think they tried their best to keep me, but that's part of the business and they probably have other plans. That's the business we're in so you move on."

Golden Knights GM Kelly McCrimmon, however, refuted Marchessault's claims, calling them lies.
McCrimmon says "this couldn't be further from the truth" and he "disagrees" with it. Chalked it up to Marchessault being a fiery guy.

Fans and analysts were shocked by the decision to let Marchessault go, especially given his significant contributions to the team. SinBin Las Vegas highlighted his importance, listing his franchise-leading statistics in goals, points, games played, and various other categories .
No one represents the Golden Knights more or better than Conn Smythe-winner, Jonathan Marchessault.

And they are letting him walk out the door after he continuously expressed a willingness and desire to stay.

Unconscionable.
