They're certainly off to a hot start, that's for sure. And I agree, they don't have many more excuses left. 7-1 tonight against the Red Wings though, so they're certainly off to a hot start. We'll see what happens but they've been playing inspired after that goal scoring fest to open the season against Carolina.

Not sure how I feel about Hunter

I'm not sure how I feel about Hunter, but I know how I feel about Boudreau. He needed to go. I just hope his replacement can do a better job.

I'm not sure how I feel about him either but I'm alright with Brucey B. leaving. This team needed a change.

"Not sure how I feel about Hunter" =

We all think hiring him is probably a huge risk.

He's had a ton of success coaching for the past 11 years in Canada, and he's loved in this town. I don't like that he doesn't have NHL coaching experience, but I think he'll breath of fresh air in the locker room. I hope so anyway.

Regardless, it's become painfully obvious that Gabby can't get the boys to play hard for him anymore. They go out there and look like they don't give a damn. Gotta nip that in the bud asap.

I think they've lost faith in the system. Probably with good reason considering it hasn't "worked" in the ultimate way yet. Too much talent on that team over the last few years to be at this point. It indeed is time for some fresh air. The Hunter hire seems like a "We may be throwing the season away so let's try to bring in someone that everyone can get behind so at least we'll come out of this as best we can."

The Ducks have fired Randy Carlyle and hired Gabby to be their new head coach. That didn't take long.

Another disappointing performance by the Caps yesterday. They're skating backwards...or some such hockey analogy to indicate this team is slipping. Players running the place, new coach with no NHL coaching experience.

The worst part is that Ovie is a shadow of his old self. I don't know what the deal is but it's very frustrating to watch!

Yeah, it's very disappointing. They are in a very deep slump right now, and even a new coach isn't helping.

Re: Washington Capitals 2011-2012 Ongoing Thread

Went to tonight's Caps-Pens game at the phone booth, and I just felt like reiterating that it is very annoying when fans shout "OH" and "RED" during "rocket's red glare" in the performance of the National Anthem. And they had a very nice sergeant singing it and I felt like it was pretty insulting to him and other service members to be doing that disrespectful bs. For once a guy sings the National Anthem without putting his own little "unique" twist on it and fans can't even shut up? Dumb.

With all that said, Caps played an ok game tonight. The 2nd period wasn't that good, but they got through it without giving up a goal, which is always a positive when the final score is 1-0. Vokoun was very solid in net tonight. Now if we could fix our road woes.

This team is an embarrassment. Never seen a team with such little heart. The 09 Redskins and Wizards try harder.

This is why nobody takes Capitals fans or Capitals hockey seriously, just sayin'.
