Florida Panthers’ coaching search now involves both of Wings’ assistant/associate coaches

This story qualifies as quasi-Red Wings-related, because it certainly sounds like the Florida Panthers' coaching search will ensure that Mike Babcock's going to have another coach flanking one of his shoulders this fall.

According to the Sun-Sentinel's Harvey Filkaov, the Panthers, who've already targeted Wings associate coach Tom Renney, are also interested in the Wings' other assistant coach, as well as someone with Red Wings ties:

Just because Panthers General Manager Dale Tallon spent the last few days in Toronto at the NHL Scouting Combine where he has been checking out potential draft picks, doesn't mean he's not continuing his search for a head coach.

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.

They've either been interviewed or are scheduled to be, with Peters having ties to Tallon from their years together in the Blackhawks' organization.


The Panthers have also shown interest in former Avalance/Canucks/Kings coach Marc Crawford and former Rangers/Oilers coach Tom Renney, who's currently an associate coach of the Red Wings.

Filkaov continues...

How are you going to interview Crawford and not Torts or Melrose?  Sure Luongo would love to be reunited with Torts.

When is training camp?

Torts is a train wreck, and Melrose is an idiot.

Let them have Renney. I’m pretty sure a three year old could run the power play better.
