Assistant Coach Jay Leach will not return to the Caps after five seasons with the team, GM George McPhee confirmed this afternoon. Leach coached the defensemen.
"It was a mutual decision," McPhee said. "He's a good man and a good coach and he helped us get to where we are."
Just to remind you that when Scotty Bowman coached Detroit it was Barry Smith who installed the famous now 'left-wing lock' system. GMGM needs to find a good 'defensive coordinator', a specialist, who could help Bruce Boudreau to improve defense. That's the main area of concern for Capitals now.
