There are many things IMHO that point to Hunter using Hamr as a scapegoat. It happens at all level of sports. I've been there (thus I'm biased). Look no further than that video and the carbon copy New Jersey loss in which Hamrlik played no part of.

There were plenty of mistakes made against Carolina - hint: watch Wideman, watch Green. I'm not suggesting those players be benched but that loss should not have been pinned exclusively on Hamrlik and Vokoun. It was a team loss.

A case could be made for benching Wideman. And yes..............the record has vastly improved with Hamr out and Green / Schultz in, vastly improved. Maybe it will starting tonight but so far - nada.

Having said all that - Hamrlik probably wishes he was traded too.
