I just have a tough time knowing that Blashil still has a job while Quenneville gets the heave-ho.


Yeah, I'm not so convinced that Blashill is the coach a rebuilding team needs and I can't say either way for a contending team. Coach/front office spending is not capped. Quite frankly, the contract status of Blashill or Holland should have absolutely zero effect on the pursuit of the coach that you want/need(Q, Trotz, etc) and Yzerman.

Don't look now but shaky goaltending, bad luck, and for whatever reason SJ's struggle to find a fit for Erik Karlsson has Peter DeBoer on the hot seat.

I think Yeo will eventually be fired. He too is being done in by shitty netminding.

Another victim of shitty goaltending. Cam Talbot has imploded in a contract year. Too bad Todd didn't think to just switch to Koskinen, he might still be there if he had. In any event I think dude just plain ran out of ideas on how to get that terrible roster to click.

Doug Armstrong deserves to lose his job for the whole stunt hiring of Yeo in the first place, but he probably won't. Craig Berube gets his second shot at interim coaching, doubt he lasts past the season.

Hakstol continues to defy the odds despite the fact he's relying on a waiver-wire netminder to save his job.

That's FOUR coaches already gone at the quarter mark following the first season since the Expansion Era that the league made it through the regular season without a single bench boss getting the axe.

Hitch hired as new bench boss in Edmonton. Here comes the shut down. The Oil are vying for that third playoff spot in the Pacific behind SJ and Calgary by any means necessary.

Thanks. I thought there weren't any coaches fired last year but wasn't positive. Funny what a difference a year makes.

But I wonder, in this year's count, should we include coaches who were let walk by a team in the off-season but not hired by someone else? Say, Doug Weight...
