Learn from him, both good and bad. If they can keep the mental stability he instilled while implementing a system that utilizes their strengths (and/or allows them to dictate play on their terms) they could do some damage.
Interesting, if true. He did a great job with the thin personnel he had this year. He absolutely loves the Washington Capitals. My guess is he realizes something is amiss with McPhee at GM and even Ted at the top.
@VogsCaps: #Caps GM George McPhee has announced that Dale Hunter has decided not to return as coach in 2012-2013, citing family reasons.
There you have it....the greatest player in Caps history just made his feelings known about the state of the franchise by turning his back and walking away from this mess.
Fantastic Leonsis and McPhee....fan-friggen-tastic.
I will say I've been expecting this.
George McPhee....The Teflon GM. 15 years of failure and counting....
6 - Number of playoff series the Capitals have won since George McPhee took over as General Manager in 1997 (which makes him the third-longest-tenured GM in the League), three of which came in McPhee's first season on the job.
