CSN Washington dot com it's just so happened. That. Monday. And another gentleman got let go. And -- move forward that quickly. Bruce is. You know. Great coaching as the main. You know Jack Adams fastest -- 200 wins. But. Presidents cup. Could coach. And I moved on that as quickly as possible. I I truly believe. And again -- city tournament this group can do it I didn't believe they can do it or not totally different direction. And blowing things up and start over and hopefully I think we have a good chance that. Think we have the generator that can and -- this and that. That direction so Bruce welcome aboard. Thanks puppets actually. Great to be here it -- in a while right for me last week as well and would like but says I sat there and on Tuesday. And if I didn't believe that this was a team. The possibilities. In the makings. Of something special I think I would have. Sat at home and and waited but. I don't think opportunities. Like this come around every day and and what is the talent that we have here and so I talked to my wife about it and I said I think we should jump at this this is I know it's only been. You know it days basically. Since I got let go -- it. It was something I thought. Was it was a chance that it wouldn't get again so. I jumped at it and got in the plane. Yesterday in and hearing him so it's that it's and it's a new start looking forward to it. Can't wait play. In that. Let's -- I think the biggest thing I tried to instill in the caught an eight in the -- the capitals when it took over was confident. They were. Beaten down a little bit and they hit. They'd lost for many years and they didn't believe in themselves is is a totally different. Story in that respect is that. They haven't lost they've been a really good team that just sort of lost the way a little bit and but. I told them this morning that. You know I believe in them I think they are really good team and I wouldn't on this I didn't believe that they. They have a really good shot at it to have a lot of good things this year so I want them to believe in themselves. No I told George that idea. I tried everything that I knew with this group right now. It is and it wasn't working right now. So you know I mean. It was sort of enjoy it and didn't have meant that it wouldn't work a week from now we just didn't work right then print those two games I was talking about. And it was the Buffalo game and it was the Winnipeg game. And that hadn't happened in the previous four plus years I was there so it was more of a surprise. For me that it hadn't worked and I was sort of taken him back a little bit by and I told jurors that. Not you know what I mean I think a lot of was blown out I got along really well with both those guys and I think I said that. For the last week that there was never a problem. With either one of them and but we all tend to want to make something out of nothing and we did. So there's really no story there. -- we cross past two years ago in Chicago. And I was an old guy he was a young guy coming and so I think that coming. I expect and more here. Well back then no comment. So it started then and I've followed his career that an innocent. It is talented players -- successful musical scores news and offense players and and I watched his coaching career as successful everywhere he went. And down most intense guys you know how they do. So on which crossed -- a few times and hasn't been a lot of communication but there's that and it is always respect that -- This is like going called George immediately. Wanted to gauge. It octopus so wanted to. Sensing his voice. If he's ready to go right back editor thought that was -- important for me. And you know there's obviously they're all good coaches. Not to have here on her alone. And down so -- move to obviously fairly quick. No I was looking for something to do I knew like. So is important for me anyway is it. It to get and I can't lie around and do anything I was gonna start watching games somewhere going somewhere and I think. At that time -- -- -- plans to go to Toronto and and do some work with a TS and there's something. This was much better. CSN Washington dot com.
