tough now. better than the ask on the ice. let me ask you though. it is one game in. way to early to make assumptions as to what happens. if you look at last night, the defense held alec ovechkin. he only had one shot on goal. do you think dale hunter will be a more defensive-mined coach? >> well, i think he has to find a way to get his offensive players more opportunity. those guys have to get more involved. i don't know how hunter is going to do it. not a lot of rest. >> you got to gift blues credit. the blues are a pretty good team. >> they're hot. >> give them cede feat the defensive game playing on the caps. it is just one game. if this is a trend over a month, there is big problems. >> i think you also have to look on the second goal, they gave up a big fat juicy rebound that allowed the blues to go up 2-16789 though his numbers look pretty good, he is letting in

it is almost a strange arena not to see gary, not to see the assistants you've seen to years there. it is just funny for watch it. but you got to be patient. he doesn't have a lot of talent and doesn't have any depth but it's coming. >> hopefully just in the transition stage. real quick, less than a minute to go. but here is the take i want to put out there on the suh situation with the two-game situation. would you rather have that guy that has the talent level that can be a franchise heedership player but has the head case issues that go along with it. is it worth it? >> absolutely. >> you would rather have him than a guy like albert haynesworth that you have to push and prod to play hard every game. you know suh is going to gift effort. it is just a matter of reining in some of that rage where he went manifest it the way he did on thanksgiving. >> what if you can't rein it in. >> if you can't, then you move
