Also Hendricks got the cold shoulder from Hunter in the beginning.

Right. Hendricks isn't good but who does Hunter have available to put in his place? In Game 5 against the Habs, Boudreau chose Sloan over Alzner. It wasn't just a stupid mistake--that could be corrected--it was Boudreau thinking he could give a guy he likes (Sloan) a taste of sweet victory. Boudreau risked Washington Capitals' chance at the Cup on playing favors.

Hunter will never do that.
