Wanted, Good With Defensemen And A/V Equipment

The Washington Capitals continue the coaching changes by letting go of video coach Jonas Plumb. Besides having a cool, Clue-referenced name, he opens the door for yet another coaching position that needs to be filled in the off season. The Capitals and Jay Leach (the defense coach) parted ways just weeks earlier.

That leaves two very lucrative spots open for qualified coaches. I have heard two rumors about the possible replacements, but it's nothing confirmed nor told to me by anyone on the Capitals' staff.

One is the possibility of bringing up Bob Woods, which would be hard to do at the moment since he is a tad busy leading the Hershey Bears in the Calder Cup finals (who just took a 2 games to one lead in that series, Holla!). The second is the return of Glen Hanlon to coach the defensive end. Since Hanlon pounded in a defense first attitude, I doubt that would be cohesive with Bruce Boudreau's aggressive offensive style. But hey, what do I know.

Those are just the rumors and are neither hear nor there. Both positions of defensive coach and video coach remain open. Dust off that resume kids.
