Welcome to the 12th edition of DGA's Top 10 Video Special. Earlier today, the Carolina Hurricanes and Washington Capitals both announced new head coaches to their hockey teams: Kirk Muller and Dale Hunter, respectively. Since I'm an optimistic person, let's take a look at some head coaches whose first game with their teams didn't go so well. Note the theme of Atlantic Division coaches in this countdown.
#10 - John Tortorella (New York Rangers)
Tortorella's coaching debut with the Rangers ended in a shootout loss.
#9 - Jack Capuano (New York Islanders)
The Islanders had lost 10 in a row before Capuano came in, and well, things didn't really turn around. They still haven't.
#8 - Jacques Lemaire (New Jersey Devils)
What would a coaching countdown be without some representation from the Devils?
#7 - John MacLean (New Jersey Devils)
