Brooks Laich said it doesnt matter whether the Capitals coach is Bruce Boudreau, Dale Hunter or Tiny Tim.

If the Caps dont start working harder, any system they are asked to play will fail. Hunter has employed a 1-2-2 forecheck that broke apart Tuesday night in a 5-1 loss to the Flyers.

I want to see our work ethic through the roof, Laich said. I want to see fire. People can point their fingers at systems but you cant execute a thing without working. I want to see our work ethic sky rocket.

Hmmm. Seven games into Hunters reign as head coach and Laich is again imploring his teammates to work harder. Not a good sign.
