RALEIGH, N.C. - The Carolina Hurricanes hope they now have the leadership tandem in place to turn the franchise around. Bill Peters was introduced Friday as the Hurricanes new coach, the first big hire made by new Carolina general manager Ron Francis. Now its up to Peters to prove it was shrewd move. Carolina has made three coaching changes since 2006 and has only one playoff appearance to show for it. "When I did my due diligence and went to look at rosters ... were not far off," Peters said. "I think theres lots of pieces here and its up to us and our coaching staff ... to max our group out." He replaces Kirk Muller, who was fired last month — a week into Francis tenure as GM — and went 80-80-27 in three seasons with no playoff berths. Instead of an established NHL head coach or a popular ex-player, Francis went with Peters — a 48-year-old Detroit Red Wings assistant who has never been an NHL head coach but was in demand this off-season. Peters said he interviewed for two other jobs and Francis says he spoke to 10 candidates during "a pretty extensive search," narrowing that to a three-man short list before deciding on Peters and giving him a three-year contract. "You have to take the time to go through it and make sure you get the right guy," Francis said, "and thats what we did." What dazzled Francis was Peters attention to detail: He penned a booklet breaking down the team and brought it to his first interview with them, and his second one included a PowerPoint presentation, Francis said. "Hes extremely, extremely detailed," Francis said. "Hes going to communicate with our players. Our players are going to know where he stands, and theres no little detail that (will) be overlooked." From the outside, his challenge looks daunting: Making the Hurricanes a consistent playoff team. Muller couldnt do it in three years. Neither could Paul Maurice, at least during his second stint with the team. Even Peter Laviolette — the only Carolina coach to hoist the Stanley Cup — couldnt get the Hurricanes back in the post-season. Now Peters gets his chance to try to revive a club that has missed the playoffs in seven of the eight years since the Hurricanes won their only Stanley Cup in 2006. The lone post-season berth since that Cup run came in 2009, when the Hurricanes reached the Eastern Conference final in the first year of Maurices second term as coach. Peters plan is to address three glaring problems from last season: Starting games strong, producing more on the power play and winning more often at PNC Arena. Carolina was the leagues third-worst team with the man advantage and was just 18-17-6 at home. "Weve got to become a harder team to play against here in Raleigh," Peters said. His hiring caps about two months of turbulence in the Hurricanes organization. Francis, a Hall of Fame player who has been both an assistant coach and an assistant GM with Carolina, was moved up a rung on the organizations ladder and his mentor, Jim Rutherford, stepped aside after two decades — and eventually wound up bolting to Pittsburgh to take over as the Penguins GM. Francis first big move came a week later when he fired Muller and put the players on notice that the responsibility for turning the team around is on them, too. After a 46-day search in which some recognizable names were floated, Francis plucked Peters from Mike Babcocks staff with the Red Wings. He spent the past three years working primarily with the Red Wings defencemen and penalty killers. Before joining the Red Wings staff, he coached Rockford of the AHL from 2008-11 and guiding that team to consecutive 40-win seasons. Eight of his Rockford players helped Chicago win the Cup in either 2010 or 2013, and he also coached Spokane (Washington) of the Western Hockey League for three seasons. "This is a guy that knows coaching," Francis said. ___ Follow Joedy McCreary on Twitter at http://twitter.com/joedyap Ever Banega Argentina Jersey .com) - Baltimore Ravens running back Justin Forsett is active for Sundays matchup with the Miami Dolphins.

Argentina World Cup Jerseys . Today, well look at five frontcourt players today, here from the Bay Area. 1. AMIR JOHNSON (Raptors): I cant figure out what the issue or problem is, but based upon what Im seeing, hes not right.TORONTO - Asked how many managers he has worked under at Toronto FC, 21-year-old defender Doneil Henry paused and thought for a while.I want to say six, he said finally.Henry, amazingly the longest-serving player currently at the MLS club, has played for Preki, Nick Dasovic, Aron Winter, Paul Mariner, Ryan Nelsen and Greg Vanney since making his debut in 2010.The young Canadian international, like many of his teammates, sees talent on the current Toronto FC roster. But too many times, he has seen the team chop and change players in a bid for a quick fix.On Tuesday, as players met the media for the final time this season after missing the playoffs with an 11-15-8 record and finishing seventh in the Eastern Conference, one after another made a plea for stability and the chance to build on the existing foundation.Ive seen it happen here for as long as Ive been here, where theyve changed the roster completely, said Henry, sitting next to English veteran Bradley Orr. Theres quality in the changing room. Theres young players that are coming through the academy and showing well.If we can just keep those players and some of the older guys like Brad to nurture them, Im sure well have more than a good team to compete in the playoffs. Every year with a changed team, its been really hard. Top teams, theyve been together for more than three, four seasons.Its a long-distance race, its not a sprint, added veteran midfielder Dwayne De Rosario. We made a step forward. Now its about keeping the team together and forming a foundation so that in the years coming, well be contending for championships, echoed midfielder Jonathan Osorio. Goalie Joe Bendik, the teams player rep, says little during the season. And he chose his words carefully Tuesday, nailing exactly what was needed and was not needed.This club has had too many players in and out, to begin with, he said.A couple more weapons or a little more depth may be all thats needed, Bendik suggested.Ironically the need for time to bed in new talent was something Nelsen had preached from Day 1 since his roster was enriched this season with the likes of Jermain Defoe, Michael Bradley and Gilberto.Nelsen said it would take time for the team to take root. He just didnt get it.It has been a glass half-full, half-empty season for Toronto. The club set single-season franchise records for wins (11) and points (41) and seemed destined for the playoffs for the first time. But injuries to key personnel and a string of poor results in the second half of the season made for another disappointing end.The players took responsibility, but also saw light at the end of the tunnel.Theres teams in those playoffs that arent as good as Toronto FC, in my opinion, said Orr. But theyve got players who have been in and around the league, know what it takes to win in this league.When that penny does finally drop with this group, which I think is very possible that it will happen very soon, I think theyll be a force to be reckoned with because theyve got a fantastic mix of good young players with a little bit of experience. While 14 players spoke Tuesday, Defoe and Bradley were both absent. They had dates with doctors in England and New York, respectiively.ddddddddddddDefoe, who is pondering surgery for a persistent groin injury, left with a question mark over his head. In a story published in the Guardian on Tuesday, he seems unsure of his future. He likes Toronto but was hurt by comments from MLSE boss Tim Leiweke questioning his commitment. The English striker led the team in scoring with 11 goals in 19 games but missed 15 more through injury or suspension after his body broke down due to back-to-back seasons in England and North America.When healthy, he proved he can score a bucketful of goals in MLS. Toronto went 6-0-2 when he scored.But his body let him down. Defoe last scored July 16 and played just 387 minutes in the 18 league games since, seeing action in just six.Almost to a man, the Toronto players brought in front of the media Tuesday spoke warmly about Defoe as a teammate and said they hoped he would be back.Captain Steven Caldwell, who said he expected Defoe to be back, also talked of the need for more mental toughness and to grind out points when things werent going well.I felt we were a little bit easy to beat at times, he said.Caldwell said while there is good unity and camaraderie among players, the squad has to reach a point where it is comfortable enough to show real honesty in the dressing room.He pointed to past clubs — winning teams — he had been on where you could tell people what you think, they could take it the right way and they could move forward. And we have to grow to achieve that in this locker-room. And it only really comes from winning.We have to be a little more honest with each other, demand a lot more from each other out on the training field and accept that when somebody tells you something, its not a criticism or a slight against your character, its to make you a better player and to make the team ultimately better.Caldwell did not elaborate. But his words evoked memories of an exchange with the fiery Bradley after a win over Chivas USA in September, a discussion that continued back into the dressing room. Both players downplayed the exchange later. Orr, who said he doubted he would be back next season, says he leaves with nothing but good memories about the club and league. Except for the refereeing.Some of the officiating has been shocking, said Orr.Vanney, who is set to meet the media Wednesday along with GM Tim Bezbatchenko, was 2-6-2 at the helm after Nelsen, who was fired along with five assistant coaches after a 9-9-6 start.Vanney, who has been told he will be back next season, was dropped in the deep end without a coaching staff but won kudos from players for his communication and clarity.The club has issues on and off the field.Leiweke, the outgoing president and CEO of Maple Leaf Sports & Entertainment, promised the soccer team would make the playoffs in 2014. It didnt and, despite record attendance, the team will lose money this year because of the investment in players like Defoe and Bradley.On the plus side, the team has three first-round draft picks in 2015, its own selections obtained from Chivas USA and Portland. A pick acquired from Seattle in the Stefan Frei deal is expected to go to FC Dallas.---Follow @NeilMDavidson on Twitter ' ' '
