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

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

Assistant coach Paul McFarland was also fired, Tallon said.

Tallon implied that the coaching change was absolutely necessary and that the team must obtain a "transformative" head coach who possesses "Stanley Cup pedigree".

Multiple organizations asked the Hawks for permission to interview Quenneville for a coaching vacancy, and general manager Stan Bowman said he has granted those requests.

While the Panthers were solid on offense, their defense struggled throughout the season.

However, the Panthers had one of the five-worst defenses in the National Hockey League and accumulated only 86 points in the standings - 10 points fewer than the previous season and 12 points less than the final wild-card team, the Columbus Blue Jackets.

But the best part about this tweet is that it came two hours after Brown tweeted: " Keep your emotions off the internet ". Pittsburgh Steelers Head Coach Mike Tomlin said that he was "disappointed" with the way Brown left the team.

Quenneville led the Blackhawks to three Stanley Cups.

The Panthers finished another disappointing season despite Aleksander Barkov finishing with the most points in a season (96) in team history. The Panthers didn't make the post-season in either of those years and now has missed the playoffs 16 times in the last 18 seasons.

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

Later Sunday, the Buffalo Sabres fired coach Phil Housley following two underperforming seasons, and after the team extended its franchise-worst playoff drought to an eighth consecutive year. The team ranked 28th out of 31 when it came to goals allowed. The Panthers are set to pay for the privilege of having an experienced coach with a winning pedigree behind the bench, but a bold move has to be made to get an underachieving group to another level. In the end, they became just the second team ever to miss the playoffs after a streak that long. The NHL playoffs begin this week.

The Florida Panthers made the first part of the previous sentence official on Sunday, firing Boughner as coach.

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