New Hurricanes coach sees areas to improve

Friday, 06.20.2014 / 3:14 PM / News

Kurt Dusterberg - NHL.com Correspondent

RALEIGH, N.C. -- For someone with no previous NHL head-coaching experience, Bill Peters hit the right notes in a press conference Friday introducing him as the coach of the Carolina Hurricanes.

Taking over a team that has missed the playoffs five straight seasons, the former Detroit Red Wings assistant coach was friendly and direct as he fielded questions. He also knew exactly what the Hurricanes need to do in order to improve: Fix the power play, play better at the start of games, and be harder to play against at home.

"We have enough skill to have a good power play," said Peters, who signed a three-year contract with Carolina. "We've got to be a 60-minute team and we have to have a hard team to play against here in Raleigh."

Oilers set to add another high pick to cadre of talent

Friday, 06.20.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Edmonton Oilers head amateur scout Stu MacGregor doesn't believe the 2014 NHL Draft is as deep as previous years, but is confident several prospects within this class will ultimately develop into solid NHL performers.

The Oilers hope to target one of those future stars with the third choice in the first round slated to kick off at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia on June 27. It marks the sixth straight year the Oilers will be picking among the top 10 and fourth time in the past five years they will hold a choice in the top three.

One thing is certain, MacGregor and his staff need to make the pick count as the organization currently doesn't own another selection until the fourth round (No. 91).

Sabres asst. GM sees strength up front in Draft

Friday, 06.20.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Mike G. Morreale - NHL.com Staff Writer

Buffalo Sabres assistant general manager Kevin Devine knows nothing is guaranteed, even with a multitude of high draft picks past and present.

"We're excited about our prospects, but at the same time, just because we get all these picks doesn't mean it's not going to be a challenge," Devine said. "We've seen other teams have early picks for a long time and struggle, so nothing is guaranteed when you go down this route.

"It's just something you hope turns out well and you can surround the younger players with guys who can support them, develop them the right way, and hopefully it all works out in the end."

Late-round picks among best of 1994 re-draft

Friday, 06.20.2014 / 3:00 AM / 2014 NHL Draft - Philadelphia - June 27-28, 2014

Adam Kimelman - NHL.com Deputy Managing Editor

NHL.com will take a look back at the NHL Draft from five, 10 and 20 years ago this week, leading up to the 2014 NHL Draft at Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. How would those drafts look today?

Looking back at the 1994 NHL Draft, it might be best to start from the bottom when searching for star players.

Of the 26 players taken in the first round, seven scored more than 100 NHL goals. Fourteen played more than 300 NHL games; three never reached the League at all.

Then look at the sixth round. Six of the 26 players picked reached the NHL; five of the six played many more than 300 games, and the sixth played 296.
