Panthers coaching search

As far as coaching candidates go, the Panthers could promote an assistant. Guy Charron served as interim coach of Anaheim in 2000-01, and Mike Kitchen coached St. Louis from 2004-06.

Rochester Americans coach Randy Cunneyworth is expected to get a look from the Panthers, as well as Ottawa, once its postseason is complete. Last summer, Cunneyworth was a finalist for the Senators job, which eventually went to John Paddock (who was fired and also could be a consideration for Florida.)

Former coaches Bob Hartley (Colorado, Atlanta) and Pat Quinn (Toronto) have relationships with Martin and could be options.
Who would you choose? I would probobly pick someone like Paddock or Cunneyworth.

On that list, Hartley, Quinn, or Cunneyworth.

PLEASE no to Kitchen and Paddock. Wouldn't be too wild about Charron, either.

Some possibilities besides those in the article:

Craig Hartsburg
Andy Murray if fired
Ted Nolan if fired
Paul Maurice if fired
Pat Burns

I dont think Paddock is a candidate, he is just mentioned in the article. I would go with Cunneyworth or Hartley. Id pay close attention to the Isles situation though because I think Nolan is a hell of a coach.

I think Nolan is a good coach, too. He seems to have gotten a lot out of that roster.

Dale Hunter all the way! He uses a good offensive system, good at developing youngsters, will bark at the players/refs if they are not doing their jobs, and will mold this team to play hard-nosed all the time.

HM: Pat Burns, but I don't think he'll choose us.

I'd say no to Hartley and Quinn. Let's let some new blood prove their worth here.

I'd also say no to Ted Nolan (if fired). He's a good coach, but the guy is a total head-case and can't go without screaming "RACISM" every time he's disagreed with.

I'll just say that I want a guy that emphasizes hustle, forechecking, and and offense first approach instead of an overly patient 'dump, chase, and sit back and wait' strategy. I'm not sure who that is, but I'm hoping we pick him up.

Edit: And like Crossbar said, I'd like a guy who won't mind opening his mouth to the refs and getting riled up every once in a while. I haven't been able to watch many Panther games live over the past few years, but the ones I have seen have shown me that Martin doesn't do much more than keep his mouth shut on the bench.

As someone who has played competitive hockey for almost 10 years of his life, it does mean a lot to see your coach give a crap on the bench, and it can really rile a team up when the bench boss gets nice and loud and shows he's got some piss and vinegar in his blood. It makes you want it more and it makes you want to go and finish your checks.

You know, a little slap of the helmet or a tap on the back goes a long way sometimes. I know they are grown men, but they need encouragement sometimes, especially when the times are real tough.

Id like to see them bring someone in who can light a fire under this team. Someone who can bring out the best of everyone. We all know we have a sleeping giant in the form of Nathan Horton, who if awakened, is a 40+ goal scorer. If someone can get in here and blow him up, thats always a plus.

I'd go with Quinn or Cunneyworth. Quinn brings back some of Keenans hard nose attitude without the idiot mentality. Cunnyworth seems to really have a talent for bringing up some up tempo play from a variety of players, plus he's got an insiders knowledge of a number of our guys.

I wouldn't mind Cunneyworth.

I also don't think it's a coincidence that Martin is currently in Rochester.

Nah, I don't think Viktor Kozlov is qualified to be a NHL Head Coach!

I bet Martin will try to get Rangers assistant coach Perry Pearn as his head coach.

It may not be a coincidence that Martin is in Rochester for 'scouting'. He might be interviewing Cunneyworth.

Might I point out that he 1) already ruined this franchise once and 2) took a Calgary team loaded with talent and BARELY got them into the playoffs.

No to the TRUE hockey devil, Iron Mike Keenan.

Doesn't Pat Quinn have a track record of failure already?

I'd definitely go with Cunneyworth, though.

Cunneyworth has got my vote. If Nolan gets booted from the Island, I think he'd be a good choice too ...

The only thing that worries me on Nolan is the Isles' meltdown this season.

I remember hearing about how they only had like 4 people who were in their opening night roster on ice for a couple games.

They've been royally screwed by injuries. Ours were spread out, theirs were just piled on all at once.

Well, ours weren't that spread out, but no, we never had 16 guys out at one time. I think the most we had injured at once this season was 7, only 5 of whom would have been playing at the same time. Still, a big impact.
