Coaches Get Fired But What About The GM?

from John Shannon of Sportsnet,

—The 2011-12 season has so far seen coaching changes in St. Louis, Carolina, Washington, Anaheim, Montreal, Los Angeles, and Toronto (23 per cent of teams).

—Yet, with less than two weeks to go in the regular season, just one GM has been fired this season.

—It has been 16 seasons (1994-95) since an NHL GM wasn’t fired mid-season.

—A mid-season NHL GM change has occurred in 37 of the 46 seasons (82 per cent) since 1967 expansion (excluding the 2004-05 lockout).

—The eight seasons when a GM wasn’t changed are 1967-68, 1968-69, 1979-80, 1984-85, 1985-86, 1990-91, 1991-92, and 1994-95.

more topics and I think this off-season we will see at least four GMs being replaced.
