The Calgary Flames announced today that Glen Gulutzan has been relieved of his coaching duties.
The Flames join the Rangers and Stars as teams looking for a new head coach.
The Flames have been linked to Carolina coach Bill Peters because of past experience he has with Flames GM Brad Treliving.
Adam Rotter: Calgary is an interesting team because they have a good mix of youngish players and veterans. They seem like more of a win now team built around Johnny Gaudreau, Sean Monahan, Matthew Tkachuk and a defense with Dougie Hamilton, Mark Giordano, TJ Brodie and Travis Hamonic. So how does this opening impact the Rangers? I think that Calgary will be looking for a coach with more of a track record and that Alain Vigneault might be a good fit. They've made big moves in the past couple of years to be in the playoffs and try to contend and I think that will lead them down a road toward someone like Dave Tippett, Dan Bylsma, Lindy Ruff or someone like that.
