A brief history of the Peter DeBoer era

New, comments

The Florida Panthers' now-former head coach certainly had an unenviable trial by fire during his first three years as a top dog in the National Hockey League:

  • Employed by 3 separate ownership groups (Alan Cohen, Stu Siegel/Cliff Viner, Viner)
  • Served under 3 general managers (Jacques Martin, Randy Sexton, Dale Tallon)
  • Coached 55 players in regular season games over three-year span
  • Record during service: 246 games coached, 103 wins, 107 losses, 36 OT losses, 242 points, .491 win %
  • 2008-09: 41-30-11 93 points (missed postseason on tiebreaker vs Montreal, since eradicated)
  • 2009-10: 32-37-13 77 points (last in Southeast Division)
  • 2010-11: 30-40-12 72 points (15th in Eastern Conference)
