Bruins fan here; haven't read all the posts in this thread but my initial response to those who would clamor to fire your GM is: Why on Earth would you do that?

I think the Caps have an excellent tandem in Leonsis and McPhee. In fact, I think Leonsis is the best owner in hockey; very supporting in word and deed of the Caps; attending so many home games, shelling out $$$.

Getting a Cup, particuarly in this paritized league, requires skill and talent (which so many teams have) and a bit of luck. It took my Bruins 40 years to win their latest Cup. Caps have nothing to be ashamed of this season.

While Bodreau was an abysmal coach, IMO, Hunter was very good. I know he's stepping down to run his OHL team, but the Caps' biggest need is at head coach and making a few deals in the offseason to address guys like Semin, and maybe Green, who have value but have underperformed.

Like all NHL teams, the Caps have a few problems to address. The owner and GM, though, aren't among them.

My views have No Movement Clauses.
Bruins HF Board: Come for the lunacy; stay for the snipefest.
Marchand: Today's Linseman
No matter what, Soderberg would've scored there.
Pastrnak means "Eurolectric" in Czech. Look it up.
