NHL Hockey coach Kelvin Dineen started the first season with lot questioning than answer it. It ends when his Florida Panthers wins the Southeast Division. He doesn’t want to step back in 2012-13.
Long term NHL player was named as Florida’s coach in the last summer then Dinnen heirs a Panther’s team which was remade by the Dale Tailon, general manager. To get 10 new players in this summer Tailon turned over the list of the player in a franchise that was NHL-record-10 straight reasons and they were not making playoffs.
Dineen said to NHL.com that “Honestly they have lot of people who are may be second or third tier players in the other Hockey teams, but they can play a more prominent role and really appreciate it”. He also said to ESPN.com that “They talked about the summer and going away for a exercise of team building instead of changing their gears, and the players coming out for the team they have to make sure that they had adjust with South Florida”.
Dineen remarkably qualified when all the desperate pieces of work well together. After that he managed a 100 percent roster as a coach of American Hockey League’s Portland Pirates.
When entering into the second season in South Florida dealing with fewer questions Dineen leads with a roster that is intact of the previous season. The only real changes of the team were Jason Garrison the defenseman, Flip Kuba, signing defenseman and George Parros and forwards Peter Mueller. Dineen plans for enjoying with the continuity that is not messing with success.
Dineen said that “He thinks that it is going to be easier start for them and the goals are different”. He also said that “He want to have a healthy good training camp and want to move forward from there”.
Relying on a veteran-heavy squad doesn’t include the rookies coming in this season. It is an interesting strategy for considering the top prospects of wealth strategy in Panther’s system. This system includes Jonathan Huberdeau who is the chosen 3rd player in NHL draft 2011.
Dineen said that “They have got a number of real quality prospect. Where the trend goes to the American League, historically he has been with the organizations Buffalo and Anaheim. And he doesn’t think that it is a unhealthy thing”. He also said that “He thinks players can go down there and can learn how to be professionals or how to grow up as people and player”.

The end to end rush against the panthers in which he escaped a defender and got the puck from in between his legs and scored while falling to his knees was one of the highlights of the league. As Lightning coach Guy Boucher puts it “he has got it all - size, speed and skills”.
Benoit Pouliot will surely be getting a chance to be in the top six this season. Coach Guy Boucher further added “he is still a raw talent who is still not sure of his position in NFL and so we have him at the perfect time”. According to Guy he needs to be more consistent with his form and Lighting will give him the support to be a great player.

To the forward Lane of the MacDermid, defense Matt Bartkowski and also Tuukka Rask goalie were given qualifying offers by The Bruins. Although Pouliot scored scorching goals for Boston he was inconsistent with his performance and it cost him his place.

Ouellet has not played in the season 2008-09. He played only three games in that season for the Vancouver Canucks. In last season he scored 31 points for Norfolk and was quiet impressive. These transfers are surely going to heat up the coming season.
