In 11 seasons as coach in London, Hunter turned the Knights into one of the most successful junior hockey clubs in Canada. He posted a record of 451-189-23-24, was the fastest coach in OHL history to win 300 and 400 games, and his .691 winning percentage is the best in league history.


You know this is just because his players were afraid he'd blind-side hit them during practice....

Zach could yelled all he wanted, but refs generally do not start giving penalties out until you start cursing at them. One little slip of a word can be the difference between a penalty and a non-call.


You must not have seen Zach.. He redefined the term "going apesh*t".. And I don't blame him, but I don't blame Kovy either

Except that the game was over when Zach lost it, it's not like an unsportsmanlike minor would have mattered at that point. And Kovy didn't just argue, he rolled over in the corner like a soccer player, showing up the refs while play was still going on at the other end!

Trust me Zach was cursing... I think he may have even invented some new curses during that tirade haha. But yeah, Colin brings up a good point. I have less of a problem with Kovy giving the ref hell and taking a penalty considering this team's penalty kill is superhuman and they actually get better chances there than 5-5 haha.



lol got a point there about our powerplay.

I will place my bets on Maurice as the next coach that gets kicked out.

Didn't have much time to build a book with that one.

Yeah seriously. The team is better down a man rather than even or up a man. If you want to be mad at Kovy, you could say he was not thinking by trying to get his team a powerplay to ensure they wouldn't score a goal!

Did Ovechkin really call Boudreau 'a fat ****'?! Saw that posted elsewhere.

With an identical record to the Devils the Capitals fire their coach...

Not that Boudreau didn't have to go, it just makes me really accept what the Devils are as a team now.


The records being identical is such an irrelevant, inane point, but someone else already pointed out why.

Apparently Maurice helped out DeBoer after FLA fired him.. Any chance DB returns the favor and Maurice becomes a Devils coach? What would he bring to the team?

So a thread about Boudreau being fired has turned into another pointless Kovy debate? Great. Is every thread gonna devolve into a pointless Kovy debate now?


Yep.

But OT, good for the caps. I thought he was a funny dude, cursing and all that junk during the 24-7 special, but I think Washington was due for a change for a while now

I thoroughly enjoyed watching Boudreau on 24/7 with all of his cursing tirades and bbq sauce stains and what not. He will be missed.

From @wyshynski:

In the end, it appears Ovechkin was the BBQ sauce stain Boudreau' couldn't wash away. #RIPGabby

This won't help Washington at all. If this is because Ovechkin got benched than who is really controlling this team? Don't expect Washington to make a deep playoff push this year.

Yeah.. Pittsburgh and Philly fired their coaches mid-season a few years back and look how it turned out for them in those years :giggle:

I do agree that if this was because of Ovechkin then him running the team is not a good thing.. You want your star to play but he has to be as accountable as every other player
