Did a Google search for "longevity of losing NHL coaches" and came across a statistical analysis from 2006. Basically said the older the coach and the longer tenure, the harder they are to get rid of. Kind of a no-brainer.
Interestingly, firing the coach mid season usually results in about a nine game DROP in performance, and then the team is back to where they were.
Winnipeg had an uptick, but now they're coming back.
I think Trotz should go, but I wouldn't expect miracles from the next guy.
