Andrew Brunette takes the helm at the Florida Panthers

There has been a change at the top of the Florida Panthers amid the sexual assault scandal that occurred at the Chicago Blackhawks. Joel Quenneville resigned on Thursday last week after meeting with the NHL commissioner Gary Bettman. Quenneville apparently did not do enough to aid Chicago Blackhawks player Kyle Beach’s sexual assault claims in 2010. Joel Quenneville’s resignation amid the scandal has marred what has otherwise been a near perfect season for the Florida Panthers who currently sit at the top of the Eastern Conference division with an 8-0-1 record so far.

In the wake of Joel Quenneville’s resignation, the Panthers have put Andrew Brunette at the helm as the interim head coach. Brunette has a wealth of experience in the NHL both as a player and as an assistant coach. He has been the assistant coach at the Panthers for 3 years now and the NHL team clearly trusts him to lead the team until a suitable head coach successor can be found.

Are the Panthers still on course to challenge for the Stanley Cup?

The real concern for Panthers fans in Florida is whether or not their team will be able to keep their good run of form going amidst the new changes to the staff. The Panthers have had a stellar NHL season so far as they lead the league with 17 points. The squad has never looked sharper than they do right now and they will be hoping that they can keep their momentum rolling into what would be their first Stanley Cup win in the team’s history. The last time they made it to a Stanley Cup final was in 1996 where they were defeated in 4-game clean sweep by Colorado Avalanche.

The Panthers will be hoping that Brunette’s knowledge of the team and of the league will be able to steady the ship and keep their title charge going. It may be a difficult transitional period for the squad but there is still hope that this team has what it takes to bring the first Stanley Cup to Florida.
