Yep. I'll post this just about every chance I get:

The great Dale Hunter and I share the same birthdate (well, he's got 20 years on me). But I found this out when I was 9 years old, and for some reason that was the coolest thing in the world. It solidified him being my favorite player growing up.

A lot has changed in the past 20 years, but Dale you still are my favorite player.

And a Happy 28th to you then, VTCF.

And there is Larry Murphy, perhaps the most vilified defenseman in this franchise's history, providing it with its most important assist...after another hall-of-fame to be defenseman -- Scott Stevens -- almost screwed things (in a good way, it turned out) up by getting in the way of Murphy trying to move the puck)

Life's funny, ain't it?

Gary Roberts has Dale Hunter posters in his bedroom and gazes at them longingly before he goes to sleep


WWDHD?

Never. Gets. Old.

Well, except to Ron Hextall. And maybe Pierre Turgeon.

Dale Hunter crushed Pierre Turgeon for no god-damned reason in '93.

THAT is his legacy - cheap shot artist.

sgtd-agreed on the cheapness of the Turgeon hit, but that's hardly his legacy for Caps fans...let the hate go, fella

Nice to remember that the Capital Centre could get loud, too. Still the biggest moment in Caps history, for me at least.
