Won't happen.
Agree, itll have to be at the end of the year - especially considering all of the excuses (no camp, shortened season, player turnover, injuries now creeping in) there's no way IMO that he is axed this season. This team is too talented to fall of the map like that. Lundqvist alone would prevent that type of record.

Heres a guy thats changed the culture of the team, gets the team a 1 seed, goes out late in the Eastern Finals.. only to be fired early in the year the next season? Not happening.

I dont see how changing the coach would benefit the team at this point either, because they would most likely have to institute an entirely new system (lets not forget they try to play a very similar system in Connecticut so its easier for the players to assimilate to the NHL level), because if they did fire him who would replace him? Sullivan? Ruff? Someone else? It would be a ****show
