my take is that it has to be one of two things as to why the caps hire non nhl veteran coaches. its either leonsis budget allowance won't allow for hiring a successful established coach or mcphee is looking for a coach with a new approach.

cassidy and hanlon were all about budget, i am convinced. boudreau was about his record as he was hired as an actual temp replacement. hunter again was hired as a temp as far as i can tell.

now? is ted skimping on the coaching budget? i would not be surprised. but who knows.
its a certain pattern of preference
