ESPN 5 coaches on the hot seat

Joel Quenneville, Chicago Blackhawks
After guiding the Hawks to their first Cup win since 1962 back in 2010, veteran coach Joel Quenneville has been one-and-done the past two playoff seasons. Yes, were it not for a couple of brain cramps by netminder Corey Crawford in the first round against Phoenix, Chicago might have written a different ending last spring, but that's not how it played out. Perhaps more concerning for the talent-laden Blackhawks was their dismal performance on special teams, as they were tied for 25th on the power play and 27th on the penalty kill. There were rumblings that Quenneville was in trouble in the offseason, and he'll need his team to start strong and show improvement on special teams to keep those rumblings from becoming something more.
