Another former Wings assistant hired to coach an NHL team. We have:

 

Peters

Mcclellan in San Jose

McLean in Ottawa

 

Then add Yzerman as the GM in Tampa and Nill down in Dallas. The Wings have done pretty well by themselves filling in front office and coaching positions throughout the league. And Tom Renney is on the short list down in Florida.

Nice pedigree. I didn't realize he coached Chicago's youngins in the AHL.

 

I called it. I should be a GM of an NHL team. :-)

 

Actually I have to correct myself. I called Peters for Pitts. Regardless, he is the first to be hired and that was my call. I forget who made the list, but there was 10 coaches available and I stated that Peters would be the optimum.

Eric Staal has a lot to prove next season. 


The Carolina Hurricanes captain already had his news coach, Bill Peters, call him out this summer for an “unacceptable” one goal on the power play in2013-14. He’s coming off his worst points-per-game season (0.77) since 2003-04.


So he’s working hard this summer. He’s been like a human training montage, complete with generic 1980s rock soundtrack. He’s pushing it to the limit! He’s got the burning heart! He’s got the touch, he’s got the power!


Annnnd he injured himself.


Hurricanes GM Ron Francis revealed on Tuesday that Staal underwent surgery to “repair a core muscle suffered during off-season training,” a procedure performed by the venerable Dr. William Meyers in Philadelphia.


“Eric notified us of the injury late last week, and flew to Raleigh and then Philadelphia to be evaluated,” said Francis. “By having this procedure now, Dr. Meyers believes Eric will be able to return to action for training camp and be at full health for the start of the regular season.”


Well that’s good news. But no word when Staal will be able to restart his P90X, er, “offseason training” this summer.
