Bill Peters was hired by the Carolina Huricanes for their head coaching gig.
Two things: I wonder how Peters will be steering the ship over in Carolina, and what kind of success he can earn over there. Also, who do the Wings pick up to fill the vacancy at Babcock's side on the bench? As the article mentions, Peters was primarily responsible for the defensive side of the game, working with defense and PK units. Considering Babcock's obsession with defense first, and playing defensively responsible at all ends of the ice and at all times, I can't imagine the Wings would pick up just anybody to fill Peters' old role. I'm not familiar with whom the top candidates may be, so hopefully someone with a little more knowledge of the coaching scene can chime in with their opinions.
