First NHL Coach Fired Odds: Sheldon Keefe Enters the 2022 Season on the Hot Seat

NHL training camp begins later this week as teams prepare for the 2022-2023 NHL season. It's a time of year when fans can be hopeful, but for some fans, it's either going to be a year of rebuilding or disappointment.

One of the coaches of a team that has massively high expectations that has significantly underachieved during his watch is Sheldon Keefe. In fact, according to the First NHL Coach Fired odds he is the favorite to get fired first.

Sheldon Keefe +650 (Bet $100 to win $650)

It's been three years since Sheldon Keefe has taken over the Maple Leafs. In three years, he's 116-50-19 for a .678 points percentage. So why would the Maple Leafs want to move on from someone who has had such success in the regular season?

Underachieving. The Leafs have yet to get out of the first round of the playoffs under his watch. In fact, they haven't done it since 2003 and they haven't won a Stanley Cup since 1967.

The Leafs' roster is stacked with Auston Matthews, Mitch Marner, William Nylander, and John Tavares. For whatever reason, they just haven't been able to get over the hump. If the Leafs get off to a slow start, maybe they make a change to spark the team.

Dave Haksol +700 (Bet $100 to win $700)

Dave Haksol got off to a slow start in Seattle. They went just 27-49-6 with a .366 points percentage. They did not have the same kind of success that Vegas saw earlier in their expansion process.

Well, Haksol is already on the hot seat for the Kraken. He was previously behind the bench with Philadelphia, where he made the playoffs twice in four years. He was bounced in the first round in 2016 and 2018 before getting fired 31 games into the 2018-2019 season after a slow start.

The Kraken need some work on the roster before we can accurately judge how Dave Haksol is doing with them. I'd be surprised if he got canned first.
