Sportsbooks Believe Boudreau Will Be the Next NHL Coach to Get Fired
Sportsbooks released odds where NHL coach will be fired next, shortly after Mike Babcock had been given his walking papers out of the Toronto Maple Leafs.
In BetOnline, Minnesota Wild bench boss Bruce Boudreau is your +130 favourite. John Hynes (+250), Peter DeBoer (+300), Jon Cooper (+650), Bill Peters (+850) along with Travis Green (+1000) are also available to bet on in the store.
Babcock, who had been +1000 to be the first coach fired before the season won’t be from work for extended, however the same can not be said for many others in the hot seat. Boudreau’s Minnesota Wild sat with a 9-12-1 record in second-last place at the Western Conference standings at November 23.
Boudreau was on a leash Before the campaign began. Ex-general manager Paul Fenton was let go after only one year and replaced by Bill Guerin. Together with Guerin overseeing things from the Gopher State, the Wild dropped flat from the gate in an awful 1-6-0 start.
Minny has not been able to escape the bottom of the conference since then, and also a 4-10-0 road record hasn’t helped things. It wouldn’t be a jolt to view Boudreau relieved of their duties.
Things are getting ugly at New Jersey, also Hynes could find himself on the workouts very soon when the 7-10-4 Devils do not pick it up fast. New Jersey’s crime has mustered up 52 goals in 21 matches — the lowest amount from the league.
Goaltender Corey Schneider has been shipped straight back to the AHL, leaving the Devils using a tandem. That is not exactly a recipe for success, however, the Devils do not have a number of different choices now.
Prior to San Jose’s recent winning series, DeBoer seemed to be the next coach. The Sharks are starting to resemble the ever-consistent regular-season squad we have become accustomed to seeing during the years right now, but so it appears more unusual for general manager Doug Wilson to pull the plug on DeBoer right now.
It is unbelievably surprising to watch Cooper on this listing, however, the underachieving Tampa Bay Lightning only seem to be outside of sorts at the quarter mark of their year. The 10-7-2 Bolts simply have not been able to score such as the team that became the next club to acquire 62 wins a year ago.
Cooper was provided a multi-year contract expansion March — until the Columbus Blue Jackets swept the group from the first round. Although there’s no denying Cooper’s art those memories that are undesirable are definitely still lingering. I don’t foresee Tampa allowing him so it’s probably best to hunt elsewhere for significance with this prop.
