The worst part about Dale Hunter hockey? We can't pull those amazing comebacks that we had with Bruce.

Hunter blows.

In the Boudreau days some people would be saying: we've won 8 of 12 with all the injuries.

No, we just had a rough series against Montreal, and then for some reason we decided to change our mentality. We gave up Flash, B. Mo, and Belanger. Tried to be more defensive. And now we have no offensive depth.

We could've been successful playing the way we were playing back then if we didn't tinker so much. The high expectations for the Caps pressured GMGM to tinker and now we're screwed.

we've wanted our team to look the same in post season as the regular season. Unfortunately they brought their post season game to regular season, not the other ways around.
