Panthers confirm Gerard Gallant is their new head coach.

Pierre McGurie mentioned on TSN radio that Gerard Gallant could potentially take a head coaching job. I'm assuming an NHL team, if not NHL I can't see him going to the AHL.

Thoughts?

A few new names have been added to the Panthers' candidate list, including Detroit Red Wings assistant Bill Peters and Canadiens assistant Gerard Gallant, according to a source close to the team.

#canadiens Marc Bergevin just told me that he give the permission to #panthers to talk to Gerard Gallant for the coaching position.

Jimmy Murphy ‏@MurphysLaw74

According to one team source and one NHL source, Gerard Gallant already might be the frontrunner for Panthers head coach.

2:38 PM - 2 Jun 2014
UPDATE: Report: Report: Panthers to name Gerard Gallant head coach tomorrow

Quote:
Jimmy Murphy:
“I have confirmed through an NHL source that Gerard Gallant is very close to becoming the new head coach of the Florida Panthers.”

“Per that same source, Panthers coaching job was down to Gallant or Dan Byslma but as of now it appears the job is Gallant’s.”

Oh yeah? No cap on staff salaries.

Keep him with money if you want to keep him. Worked for Rick Dudley.

Dudley has been a GM. Gallant has not been a head coach.

I really do not care that much.

Actually if that would mean we could get Boucher back in some capacity as an assistant, then I would care yes.

I always felt that NHL coaches have a certain kind of a aura or look.

Gallant definitely got it.

Example, Kirk Muller embodied the perfect assistant coach and was never able to picture him as a head coach.. And he's back as assistant next year.

Well if that's the case, I would be glad if he's gone... and anyone who would hire him, clearly didn't follow the habs well enough this season.

Wouldn't mind that at all, if Gallant leaves. I remember that he was pretty good, communication-wise, while he was here (had to be with JM around... ). And wasn't our PP a monster at the same time ?

Wouldn't mind Boucher here as an assistant either, wonder if he would want to, though. Would be a great potential replacement for Therrien...

does this means he picks the PP lines or just the set up.

Pretty sure Clement Jodoin controls the PP. Seemed that way during the playoffs and practices.

Gerard Gallant has NHL Head Coach experience, won everything he could've win with Saint John in the Q, and now that he is back in the pros MTL is overachieving. That's got to appeal to a GM somewhere.

gallant is a smart coach, he's basically in charge of the technical aspect of the game (strategy etc.)

honestly ive always considered gallant as our coach and therrien as some terrible motivation speaker

If he leaves, its a big loss for the Habs. He's essentially MT's brain trust. A smart, smart coach.

I believe Jodoin has huge input into how the PP is run, based off 24CH.

Boys at least spell his name right, it's Gerard Gallant. Not "Gerrad".

If teams are interested in him there's no way Gerrard runs Habs special teams. Whoever runs Habs special teams is as likely to get a NHL head coaching job as Lefebvre.

I don't care if he stays or goes, people often give coaches too much credit for things the players actually do

He seems to be a good assistant coach. Too bad if this is true.
