Odds For The Next Coach To Be Fired In The NHL

via Bovada,

Who will be the Next Head Coach Fired in the NHL?
Todd McLellan                          11/5
Guy Boucher                             12/5
Joel Quenneville                        11/4
Jefff Blashill                             19/2
Randy Carlyle                            19/2
Bob Boughner                           20/1
Dave Hakstol                            30/1
Mike Yeo                                  30/1
Mike Babcock                           66/1


Personally I feel Blashill is safe unless the team really goes into the tank and stops playing for him.  I do not see that happening.

This is honestly the first year where Blashill can do what he supposedly does best— play and develop kids.

So you kinda’ have to ignore the other seasons and concentrate just what he does with this.  So far it’s not bad, but it’s also very, very early.

Yeah I agree but will be interesting to see what he does when the vets get back from injury and if the team is playing about the same.

Wow the Big Q right above Blashill, oh I remember the days when HHHT swung from those mustached berries, with dazed and dreamy eyes, envious thoughts of him and Stan Bowman for that matter… and then reality sets in that they’re both human and only as good as the players that jump the boards.
