I wouldn't want that job as a coach. You become a puppet. Do what Ovechkin wants or lose your job. Defeats the point of coaching.
Pretty much. It takes a strong coach to be able to face down the superstar and get him to be a team player. Boudreau wasn't really that guy. Hunter is, but he doesn't want to do it long term.
