Afternoon Line

Dale Hunter didn’t do anything more with the Capitals than Bruce Boudreau did, aside from further neuter an offensive juggernaut and void their status as a team that’s fun to watch. So if you’re the Vice President and GM George McPhee, why have him back? Why not let him keep his dignity, allow him to say “I’m stepping down to spend more time with my family and work on the family business,” and go about replacing him with a coach that can help this team win more than 50% of their games in the Southeast division?

The fun part about being a blogger is getting to completely speculate on stuff like this, which I’ve taken the liberty to do here in a major way.

He’s exactly right. Hunter looked good at first glance because of the upset in the first round. But his entire point percentage, regular season and playoffs, is .500. Worse than Boudreau, I believe.
