Dale Hunter on his way in?

ESPN speculates:

Former Capitals captain Dale Hunter, presently coaching junior club London in the Ontario Hockey League, might eventually get the Washington coaching job if GM George McPhee can keep his job, according to the Ottawa Sun.

Many observers expect McPhee to follow recently fired coach Glen Hanlon out the door in Washington by season's end and the Sun mentioned Doug Armstrong, recently fired by the Stars, as a possible replacement.

The Sun previously reported that Caps owner Ted Leonsis had already initiated the search for a new GM.

A strong candidate, according to the Sun, should be Brian Lawton, who was a prominent agent but stepped down from Octagon Hockey earlier this year to pursue a management position somewhere.

The Sun listed TSN analyst Pierre McGuire and former Islanders GM Mike Milbury as other candidates.

As we have mentioned before, the Dale Hunter rumors have been going around for a bit now. I have to say though, I would rather take Satan as a GM then Mike Milbury.



1) As we wrote previously; Don't believe a thing Bruce Garrioch writes! Its based on his speculation based on erronious/incomplete information. Useless crap!

Sweet mother of Murgatroid! What the hell did the Caps do in another life to deserve such a fate?

Faux is dead right. Plus in his chat last week Tarik said that all indications are McPhee's job is safe.
