I really really don't like Dale Hunter

Postby guiner on Wed May 09, 2012 10:13 pm

I had high hope when he was hired. Given what I thought of him as a player, I thought he'd be an absolute jerk and fuel my dislike for the Caps. But I am SO disappointed, I've watch a good number of his interviews and post game comments... and this guy is unbelievably balance, realistically sees the game, he give credit to the other team, he realizes there are lucky or bad bounces and calls each way.

I tend to agree with him nearly 100% of the time. THIS IS TOTAL B.S. I hate this guy. Come on, its not fair....

Haha I agree I like his style and the Caps dont bother me as much and I was always a fan of Troy Brouwer

If the Pens don't win the cup, I never cared who won after that. And personally, the Caps were always my 2nd favorite team and as such I never saw them as a rival.

He looks like Brian Doyle Murray. Every time I see him behind the bench, I think he's going to pull a groundhog out of a hole.

Hey, he tried to help the Penguins win three straight Cups. Not his fault we couldn't beat the Islanders without their best player.

The Caps are much more hockey and much less 'Rock the Red' these days, which I like as well. Also not as much to hate about their style, now that AO is basically just a sniping winger and not the greatest show on ice and Mike Green spends a requisite amount of time behind his own blue line.

It helps that they've faced 2 teams in the playoffs who I hate at least as much. If it would have been the caps & flyers in the finals, my brain would've exploded.

The Caps have been less obnoxious to me lately until I watch about 30 seconds of their home games. That reason alone is why I want them to fail. But as I've said in another thread. Its win win for me at the moment. They lost tmw, I'll lol cuz theyre out and blew it big time in Game 5, or they win and we get to hear Torts blow up and their GM can eat his words for basically proclaiming them the the Cup winners like 5 months ago. And also the New Yorkers can shove it.

Hunter is a turd and a mutant. Their ownership is a bucket of dumb, and their fans nothing but a bunch of crybaby suck*sses.

Screw em all.

I like him fine - in big games as a player and a coach they lose. He's a keeper!

I really like what Hunter brought to the Craps. Accountability....my way or the highway. Not afraid to sit vets for poor play. Cut Ovi's icetime. Screwball Semen even bought into it. I found myself doing something that i've never done. Rooting for the Craps. They knocked off the defending champs in round 1, and pushed the 1 seed to a one goal 7th game. I despised Hunter as a player, but respect him as a coach. Dont know how long the relationship with the prima donnas will last, but he pushed the right buttons and had them playing solid hockey in the post season.
