Well his first coaching gigs (to my knowlege) were all asst. positions with TBL & now NJD. The names I see thrown around here: McT,Hartley,WILSON for God sakes... not a step fwd for DC. I admit to being born a NYR fan who has been in DC for 14yrs now & I follow the Caps very closely. I also am a fan of theirs when they are not playing NY. I am amazed by the job Hunter did in very little time. I also had a feeling he was not staying. Too bad & good luck to the Caps. It has been wonderful seeing hockey take off here. Hopefully they can keep it rolling
