There has been a significant wave of firings among head coaches this season. Seven coaches have lost their jobs since the start of the regular season, and more could occur by the offseason, depending on results at the end of the campaign and in the playoffs.

I'm thinking here especially of the Toronto Maple Leafs and the Pittsburgh Penguins.

Things are moving so quickly in the NHL since Martin St-Louis started in Montreal that he has already become the ninth-longest-serving coach in terms of longevity, despite only having 150 games of experience under his belt.

The future of St-Louis could be on thin ice




However, as surprising as it may seem, according to the sports betting site SportsBetting, St-Louis is currently ranked 6th among the coaches most likely to lose their job. Wow!



Given that everyone knows MSL is currently well-seated with a team in reconstruction, where results don't count, but rather progression and development are analyzed to assess his impact, it's very surprising to see him ahead of someone like Sheldon Keefe, for example.

Kent Hughes also reaffirmed his confidence in his coach during his last press briefing, mentioning that he was very satisfied with the work accomplished by him.

As long as the Canadiens do not move to the next stage and a playoff qualification becomes the organization's goal, which should not happen before the 2025-2026 season, it would be very surprising if St-Louis's position with the CH was at risk.
