11:10 AM ET 11.09 | Peter Horachek is the third consecutive first-time NHL head coach hired by the Panthers, including Dineen and Pete DeBoer. Horachek and his players believe the season is still salvageable. "You could see how organized he is and he has a great hockey mind," forward Shawn Matthias said. "There's a lot of hockey left. This has been a tough stretch but we're all starting over tomorrow and moving forward you're going to see a different team on the ice." Tallon said he and the new owners, Vinnie Viola and Doug Cifu, wanted a new voice in the dressing room. "Peter is a no-nonsense guy, a good communicator and we'll give him a chance to show his wares," Tallon said. Horachek seemed surprised when he was asked if the "interim" tag, meant the final 66 games was an audition or trial run. "I never was given the word interim myself," Horachek said. "We talked about now and about the immediate needs and what changes need to happen in the near future."

"Confusion over Peter Horachek's 'interim' tag?"

No confusion. 'interim' = a temporary or provisional arrangement; stopgap; makeshift.

See, no confusion. Must be that South Florida sun!!!

"interim" in Florida means you didn't look before bursting out the door in the morning forgetting to look for them gators hiding under the car.

Vinnie still can figure out which is worst, Philly? Or, Floriduh?

The Panthers had a solid season 2 years ago and almost beat the Devils in the 1st round of the playoffs, they looked good and ready to become a contender. Ahhh the memories.

I imagine Luongo is kinda glad the trade didn't happen after all

It might have been a different story if he had been.

It didn't help that Tallon had no money to spend this offseason. If the sale had happened earlier - maybe he could have thrown some money at free agents. But that's still no excuse for this horrid start to the season. Jeezum crow, to paraphrase Stephen King....

What about Peter Mahovlich?
