Coaching Candidates For The Florida Panthers

from Harvey Fialkov of the Sun Sentinel,

Add veteran NHL coach Ron Wilson to the growing list of candidates lining up for a crack at the Panthers' vacant head coaching job, according to a team source.

And apparently there's more to come as the source indicated that the Panthers may wait until as late as June 23 or the end of the AHL Calder Cup Finals for a chance to interview Texas Stars coach Willie Desjardins as well as Los Angeles Kings assistant coach John Stevens, who's a tad busy in the Stanley Cup Finals until possibly June 18.

Wilson was interviewed by General Manager Dale Tallon earlier this week as was Canadiens assistant Gerard Gallant, who has helped guide the Habs to two consecutive playoff berths.

Tallon has already met with former Stanley Cup-winning Avalance coach Marc Crawford as well as Red Wings assistants Tom Renney and Bill Peters, who Tallon hired to coach the Rockford Ice Hogs of the AHL when he was the Blackhawks GM.
