Just because Panthers General Manager Dale Tallon spent the last few days in Toronto at the NHL Scouting Combine where he has been checking out potential draft picks, doesn't mean he's not continuing his search for a head coach.

A few new names have been added to the Panthers' candidate list, including Detroit Red Wings assistant Bill Peters and Canadiens assistant Gerard Gallant, according to a source close to the team.

They've either been interviewed or are scheduled to be, with Peters having ties to Tallon from their years together in the Blackhawks' organization.
