Florida Panthers Part Ways From Bob Boughner; What it Means Going Forward

Florida Panthers Part Ways From Bob Boughner; What it Means Going Forward

"We didn't meet expectations this season and share responsibility for that fact", Tallon said.

The Panthers also fired assistant coach Paul McFarland.

"We will seek to identify a transformative, experienced coach with Stanley Cup pedigree to lead our team going forward".

Quenneville has a long relationship with Panthers general manager Dale Tallon, winning the Stanley Cup together with the Blackhawks in 2010.

The Panthers are an intriguing option coming off an 86-point season and are expected be a big player for free agents like Artemi Panarin.

Boughner was sacked after a 4-3 loss to the Devils on Saturday night finished a 36-32-14 season.

Coaches with that "Stanley Cup pedigree" aren't abundantly available, other than Quenneville, so he is clearly the target.

The Panthers finished another disappointing season despite Aleksander Barkov finishing with the most points in a season (96) in team history.

Florida ended up 12 points behind Columbus for the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference after barely missing out on the postseason a year ago.

Per the report, the hiring of Quenneville isn't a "done deal", but the hiring could be happening very soon.

The Panthers haven't won a playoff series since 1996. The team ranked 28th out of 31 when it came to goals allowed. The team missed the playoffs in both years.

The team announced Sunday that Bob Boughner had been relieved of his duties behind the bench, bringing his tenure with the club to a close after only two seasons.

The 55-year-old Housley is a Hall of Fame defenceman who spent his first eight National Hockey League seasons playing in Buffalo but failed to restore any semblance of success to a franchise that hasn't won a playoff round since reaching the East finals in 2007.

The Florida Panthers have officially joined the list of teams in the market for a new head coach. There are now eight openings, with the Buffalo Sabres firing Phil Housley on Sunday as well.

Regarding former Head Coach Bob Boughner, the ownership and management simply desired a different voice within the position.
