At 3:37 that's rage. Short, emotional, and by being short has more weight to it than sitting there for a minute while someone yells at you sounding like a scared child themselves.


Was Hull yelling at the whole room including himself or a particular individual?

I'm curious does Vokoun still think that the Caps are safer bet to win than our beloved Red Wings? :ph34r:

You know, I honestly thought that Columbus would fire their coach long before now. They are giving him a lot of rope before he hangs himself, that's for sure. Then again, considering what he's got to work with and where he is, maybe I should not be surprised that he hasn't been given his walking papers.

This was his highlight of the entire series. He was also shown to be a pretty weak coach.

Nash is probably the person most responsible for the team's lack of success.

Edit: Mason, not Nash. Oops.

Does that mean that Ovechkin is the person most responsible for Washington's lack of success?

No, because he's not the goalie. If a team's goalie is letting in far too many goals, that team can't win. The the goalie is the one stopping all the pucks; no player on a team is scoring all the goals. Other players will still be scoring.

Edit: Whoops. I just realized that I wrote Nash instead of Mason.

I can think of about one-hundred million reasons why Ovechkin had better, or at least pretend to, suck up to Hunter.

The photo is of him in an interview for 24/7 with obvious bbq sauce stains around his lips.

I apologize if I'm kinda behind on this, but what was Boudreau's locker room speech on 24/7? What was so bad/controversial about it? Also, Ovechkin comes off as a little kid that pitches a s*** fit if he doesn't get his every wish. He's got unbelievable skill, but he seems like a little whiny prick.

I know the star player always wins these kind of battles, but I don't place the blame completely on Bruce. Sure, you've got to demand respect and earn the respect of your team, but when there are dickheads like Ovechkin and Semin who float around and play hard when they feel like it, its got to be difficult.

20 plus years ago we wouldn't see this behavior from the players; today the players can pretty much get the coach fired...It's a tough job to be an NHL coach these days; a fine balance between motivator, and an ass kisser, but rarely a hard ass (being one can get ya fired).

Oddly enough, I was just reading in a back-issue about how Boudreau's bold decision to keep Ovi in the bench was just the sort of coaching that the team needed to move forward and deeper into the playoffs.

Yep. That worked.
