Panthers coach ready for new challenge

From the Globe & Mail:

Something just doesn’t feel quite right for Peter DeBoer.

For the past 14 years he’s been back on the ice by late August and right in the thick of an Ontario Hockey League training camp. This summer, the new head coach of the Florida Panthers is still three full weeks away from running his first camp for the pros.
