Hunter Steps Down As Caps' Head Coach

Dale Hunter, head coach of your Washington Capitals, stepped down today.  As I'm sure many of you remember, Hunter took over during the middle of the season for Bruce Boudreau and coached the team to the conference semifinals against the Rangers.  Hunter cited his family and farm team in London as some of his reasons to step down.

GMGM now has the task of finding a new coach for the team--Anyone but this man...

Sorry, I meant this man...
Whoever the new coach ends up being, this is not the only change we should expect from this team during the off-season.  Alex Semin's agent has reportedly stated that he does not wish to return, Tomas Vokoun is expected to leave (although I'm sure not many of us expected him to last anymore than one season anyway), and several other veteran Caps players might not be returning [i.e. Halpern, Knuble, Wideman (please god get rid of Wideman!)]

Dale, you will be missed and I'm sure we all will remember you.
