yes. show me any evidence that shows that dale hunter is remotely well spoken.
he's not quiet because he is reserved. he is quiet for largely the same reason that alex semin is quiet. he is not comfortable speaking.

see his interviews as a player. as captain he was the guy that the media went to particularly when the better offensive players were european. his answers were short and unremarkable.

post game as the coach he says little. the questioner asks, "how important was getting the first goal?". coach says, "it was important. its good to get a good start"
next question.

have you seen him give a referee crap for a hideous call? not once. when the referee talks to him, he doesnt speak. just listens. he might say, "ok" at the end.

he may have an advanced vocabulary and is afraid to use it. my take, though, is that he is a rural farmer with a less than high school education because he played junior hockey. as mcphee said, "he knows farming and hockey".

all the evidence is that he doesnt say much. that tells me that he has always coached just this way. he diagrams out the play/system. he tells you what he expects in a few words. questions are directed to the assistant coaches and you hope he never speaks a word to you after that.

why is jim johnson there? because, he is the mouthpiece. he IS a talker. he is a one on one instructor.

my guess is that if he speaks between periods he doesnt say much and doesnt have to raise his voice to be heard clearly.

Definitely not the Yorktown. She listed to the other side.

I thought they would have gotten some close ups of the Hornet while they were getting ready to tow her, but perhaps not. The Northampton had to at least get reasonably close, but I couldn't find anything other than a couple shots where she was already under tow.

I don't give a **** if Sarge rubs a player out very weakly along the boards once in a while he's still been **** and most likely always will be.

Orlov should be playing, Carlson if anything needs to sit a game

Hunters bizarre roster management continues

Not even Schultz can prop up the bad play of Carlson.

Orlov has one bad game and he's the new benchwarmer?

At least the kid can do something with the puck.

Stupid stupid, bad for his confidence. Watch now he's going to play extra simple.

I can picture it now.

Dale: you just gotta keep it simple orly.

Orlov: ok I'll just dump it off the glass now!!

Interesting to hear Ovi is 3rd in goals since mid December. In what must be less TOI, no ENGs and rotating centers. Amid boring defensive hockey. You were so bored, maybe you hardly noticed.

It appears Carlson is the can't miss kid so Orlov sits but he did get a big ass cup of coffee callup. I often hear about posters worried about rookies playing in the long grueling system and getting worn down. Its your time to celebrate.

That doesn't mean it's good center depth.

True they don't have a number one center though which hurts. Just a bunch of 2/3's

Backstrom>Zajac
Mojo=Henrique
Laich<Elias
**** the fourth lines, It's not that uneven

Aucoin is playing better. 5 points in last 4. Including being instrumental in the comeback vs the Islanders.

I get that, just surprised Ward still gets sweaters while a guy like Perrault isn't.

On top of that, no Mojo on 2LW? I like Chimera but the possible Chim-Laich-Brouwer line is something I figured would be pretty solid.
