Afternoon Line

“You should ask him about the penalties because when he played, I think he make lots of penalties himself. He should know better.  This is the game, guys go on emotion time. I know I take bad penalty, but if it’s the reason I didn’t play that’s his decision.”

-Roman Hamrlik, defenseman for the Washington Capitals talking about head coach Dale Hunter.  More from Katie Carrera of Capitals Insider.

Goodbye Dale Hunter, and season.

If Dale Hunter got benched every time he took a stupid penalty, Dale Hunter never would have been playing.

Kinda’ surprised to see HAMRLIK of all people being this frank.  If he is, then yes, Hunter probably never had the respect of the players to begin with, and certainly doesn’t have it now.

Show of hands of everyone who saw Dale Hunter’s coaching tenure as laughable on level with Gretzky’s?

One, two, three… seventy, seventy-one… oh nevermind.  It’s too many to count.

Somewhere Pierre Turgeon is laughing his ass off at Hunter, Dale.
