I'm not pining for Hunter, mind you. What I'm saying is this team needs a coach like Hunter. Someone that doesn't take **** from anybody, especially the players. Someone that lets these guys know who the boss is. Someone like Torts. Its the only time I've seen these guys not fold.
I think if there's a virtue to Hunter's coaching, it's not the fear factor, it's the opposite. It's not that he didn't take crap from anyone, it's that he was unflappable and was always even keeled.

"They didn't fold" doesn't tell me much though, since that team was probably better and a hotter goalie can cover up what would normally be folding play. They didn't fold because Holtby was good and the B's weren't, really. Saying anything more than that is kind of hand waving.
