Peter DeBoer is the new Panthers Head Coach

Thanks to GR for breaking the story and RoaddogFL for noticing so quickly.

So...the question here is...what are we getting with DeBoer? I know nothing about the guy.

Interesting. Good to see some new blood in the NHL coaching ranks, I'm tired of seeing these retreads. I would have been shocked if Martin chose Maurice.

He's the coach that beat Matthias' Bulls senseless.

he has coached Weiss...

DeBoer became an assistant coach for the Detroit Junior Red Wings in 1994. After one season he was promoted to the dual position of Head Coach-GM. He showed his coaching prowess winning the Matt Leyden Trophy as OHL Coach of the Year for two consecutive years in 1999 and 2000. The Plymouth Whalers, as they are now called, established them as a consistent OHL force under DeBoer. After the 2000–01 season, DeBoer and his assistant, Steve Spott, left Plymouth and joined the Kitchener Rangers in a position similar to the one they had in Plymouth. It took DeBoer two seasons to lead the Rangers to a Memorial Cup victory, something he was never able to achieve in Plymouth. DeBoer was an assistant coach for gold medal-winning Team Canada in the 2005 World Junior Ice Hockey Championships. He had been rumoured to be heading for the vacant head coaching position for the Toronto Marlies in 2005, but the job was filled by Paul Maurice. DeBoer continues to be among the OHL's elite for head coaches.

Here is an article that reveals a little bit: http://news.therecord.com/Sports/article/345101

I do like the idea of getting some new blood in here. Hopefully it produces a winning team on the ice.

good link, player talks about his experiences with him

from what it says, it certainly isnt a Martin remake - he demands respect from his players, yells at them too.

Me: What kind of team do you think he would be best for?
Donally: Probably a younger team. He's more of a motivator. The older players might kind of like a not as hard-nosed guy. They might prefer someone who's more face to face and not yelling. But dealing with 16 and 17-year-olds is one thing, dealing with 26, 27-year-olds - millionaire players - they're completely different mindsets. I haven't been in those shoes, so I can't really tell you for sure.

I guess based on this quote, he isn't going to be allowed to pick his coaching staff? I don't like that at all...

Quote:
“Peter was our top candidate to fill the coaching vacancy and we are very pleased that he has decided to join our organization,” said Martin. “He is a great hockey mind who will complement our coaching staff very well. He has been very successful in the junior ranks and I am confident that he will help our franchise accomplish its goals.”

Wow, never would have guessed it. We've had OneOfTheHockeyGods and Georgia Panther crying for weeks saying a Martin clone was going to be hired.

Are we keeping the assistants?

If we are I don't really like it although the power play was the best asset of this team last year.

I don't mind Charon as much as I do Kitchens, would rather Laus be brought in.

IMO, Kitchen was part of the reason our D went downhill last season as he was in charge of it and the personnel really didn't change after we let Kingston go.

I agree fully, I don't want him back. What irks me is that Paul was interviewed and it went to Kitchen. I don't know if Paul would be better, but I think he'd do well in that position.

It actually makes sense - the guys from Martin's coaching staff are all longtime vets. It's a smart move keeping experienced guys around your rookie coach - just so long as the coach is still the one calling the shots.

Nice to see a fresh face rather than a re-tread. Anyone know anything about his demeanor. I'm hoping he's a little bit of a fiery-type of coach. I think this team needs that right now.

I posted a thread in the OHL forum asking some of these questions. One guy gave some good information on the system he runs. I asked him basically the same thing you're asking so we'll see what he has to say.

My gut told me DeBoer was the right coach for the Panthers. He is the kind of coach who pushes player's buttons at the right times; he'll get aggressive if need be. He's a good fit though, because his coaching style is more conducive to the Panthers, than say the Senators (where he was rumored to be going). He's better suited to coach younger players than veterans. I'm optimistic about this hire.

I wonder if this coaching decision will have a big effect on whether Bouw re-signs. I think he might have known that JM was not going to be returning, and is waiting to see who the new HC will be. I really think Bouw will resign, but I think this was a major part of the delay. I will expect to hear some news come in the Bouw situation very soon. Do the right thing Bouw, resign with the Cats.

Great signing. As a fellow Dunnville guy I can say that I think this is a great hire, Peter has done a lot with a Rangers team that while they had a good roster this year, they didn't start out as favourites, but he brought them together, as he has for most of his years in Kitchener, to be a good team, and play a good all around game. It will be interesting how he treats fellow Dunnvillonian Horton. Don't know if they are familiar with eachother or not. I also went to an Adam Graves hockey school in town when I was younger (I believe 3 years) and Adam invited Peter every year to come out and work with us, so it isn't like he is newly regarded as a good coach (that was 15 or so years ago).

So I'm pretty happy with this hiring.
