Someone tell me about DeBoer that makes him such a good option? I know Florida is a ****** place to work with, but it seems he may be part of that culture of losing that we're trying to get away from. What's his style/system like?

I just hope Joe does his homework on this and interviews as many candidates as possible. Hell, he may wait and awhile to see which teams are elminated from the playoffs and go from there. Paul McLean in Detroit is one example of a coach I'd see getting a chance.

Either way, I am happy with this move.
I grew up playing hockey in the Quad Cities when Paul MacLean was the coach of the Quad City Mallards and I have always thought of him as a great coach. His players always responded very well to his system and his coaching style. I think he would make someone a great head coach. I also think that when a coach like Mike Babcock holds onto an Assistant Coach like MacLean from his time in Anaheim and then Detroit you know he has to be doing something right.

Was DeBoer around when Nieuwy was in Florida?

Do the two have a previous business relationship that would lead me to believe DeBoer's next in line?

If so, I too am eager to learn what his m.o. is as a head coach, and how it would apply to the Stars.

DeBoer is a hard working coach, installs a work ethic, your team is always in it. He was an amazing coach in Kitchener and Plymouth.

I'm on board with this.. 2,5 years without playoffs compels the management to make changes. But I'm not so sure about Desjardins becoming the new no.1 ..We need some new spark to get this team winning again.

Mods can we please merge this and the Crawford Fired thread, or at least move the pertinent posts concerning new coaches over there to this thread?

Would love if Joe looked at Paul MacLean (not to be confused with John...) Any coach from the DRW who was around Babcock as long as he did has to have good experience.

basically echoing what the other guy said about Gully. EXTREMELY conservative coach, puck moving d-men won't thrive under his system points-wise for the most part, but gets very good results. His teams are usually very disciplined too. Not a lot of dumb penalties, but he doesn't let them get pushed around either.

Interesting the lenders approved this with a year remaining to be paid on his contract

That's the only reason I'm even remotely shocked that he was fired.

Didn't think they would let cash like this/that walk away for nothing at the moment, even though it needed to be done.

I dont think he was a main part of the problem but he wasnt much of a solution either. I am surprised they bit the bullet and let him go considering they will have to continue to pay him, but I cant say im disappointed at all.

Peter DeBoer's name is being thrown around a lot in this thread. His NHL record with the panthers in 3 seasons is 103 Wins, 107 losses and 36 OTL. If you look at the environment he was in with the Booth concussions and the organization's mess in general, the record he amassed is pretty decent. Willie would also make a good candidate as well.

My List (not necessarily in order)

Peter DeBoer
Willie Desjardins
Glen Gulutzan (He reminds me of Dave Tippet. Very defensive, structured system)
Bob Hartley (Him and Kari have history. He's the only coach to bring ATL to the playoffs)
Ken Hitchcock (lol)

When Tips was fired, Crow was named head coach the following morning.

Think Joe will make the call that quick this time around, or wait a bit while the ownership deal sorts itself out?

Crawford did have perfect attendance.

Of course they're not happy with this. He didn't hold anybody accountable.
