We're pretty much at the midway point, and most people have speculated the short season would keep some coaches behind the bench rather than being fired. Despite Ruff, that seems to be trend at this point. No one's poaching Desjardins this season probably.
If they are going to make a coaching change ... just wait until the season is over. Texas is too good right now, and we all know how much a long playoff run helped Jamie Benn.
I'm not saying this season is over in the NHL yet, but if they don't make the playoffs, Texas will get flooded with talent. They get four huge pieces in Eakin, Smith, Roussel, and Dillon. I assume Oleksiak and Benn will already be back there when the D get healthy.
Add to that talent, Ritchie, Vance and Jokipakka are probably locks to get added. My guess is Winkler comes in, and you could see Klingberg or Molin coming over.
Texas is poised for a deep, deep run. You want Desjardins leading the way.
