The Washington Capitals have named Dale Hunter the team’s head coach, replacing Bruce Boudreau.

Hunter, 51, will make his debut behind the bench tomorrow as the Capitals host the St. Louis Blues at Verizon Center.

Much more to come soon.

Indeed. This isn't a "taskmaster" to "player's coach" move, a la Hitchcock to Stevens. This is Hitchcock to Hitchcock on 'roids. VERY curious to see how this works out.

yep, I agree Doom - the Caps were a write-off with BB in charge. Now...who knows what Hunter may be able to accomplish. There's plenty of talent to work with in the lineup, and DH isn't likely to put up with any b.s. from Semin or anyone else. It's certainly possible Hunter can whip them into shape by April...
