The Carolina Hurricanes are still in search of a new general manager. Might they also need to start looking for a new head coach soon?

Sportsnets Elliotte Friedman reported last month that the clubs current coach, Bill Peters, could move on thanks to an option in his contract that would allow him to walk away with one year left on his deal.

According to Friedman, that option is currently open.

We mentioned a couple weeks ago that Carolina Coach Bill Peters has an option open in his contract to leave, Friedman explained during Hockey Night in Canada. That is on right now. There was some belief it was a seven-day option that wouldve closed potentially as soon as today, but I think thats been extended and he remains to have the ability to look around if he wants to leave the Hurricanes.

In his latest edition of 31 Thoughts, Friedman suggested a few names to keep an eye on should Peters walk.

If Peters does leave, you have to think AHL Charlotte coach Mike Vellucci is the likely replacement, although hes been rumoured as a GM possibility, too, he wrote. Word is [team owner Thomas] Dundon is a Rod BrindAmour fan, too.
