yes, its odd.

* as a rule the coach hasnt turned down nhl coaching opportunities because he wanted to remain at home with his junior team and family.

* as a rule those midseason coaching replacements are not defacto interim coaches.

* as a rule the team involved is not a several seasons cup contender that was expected even after the coaching change to perform deep into the playoffs or be considered a failure.

this is not bruce boudreau taking over a losing team and making the playoffs for the first time who was also desperate for a chance to coach in the nhl. the boudreau scenario is the typical one.

we all considered that it was possible that hunter might well have walked away had the caps won the cup. that also would have been pretty odd.
