I'm surprised you're not advocating for an immediate HC change.

Here's why:

You've always said that when a team makes an HC change during the season, there is usually an immediate bump up in their play. Short term success. In a shortened season, this would seem especially important for a playoff run, which is especially important for an organization that needs the team to make the playoffs for financial reasons (not just revenue/profit, but also to prevent bleeding of STH's as it was LeBrun recently pointed out how the Sharks lost 3000 STH's after the last season they missed the playoffs).

Where is the flaw in this logic that starts with your premise that teams get a short-term spark from an HC change and in a shortened season, that would necessarily have a greater impact than making an in-season change during a normal season?
