Desjardins pegged as odds-on favorite to be 1st coach fired
Willie Desjardins has been tabbed by oddsmakers as the NHL coach most likely to be fired first.
It's not surprising, seeing as his Vancouver Canucks have dropped eight straight games.
Of note, Peter Laviollette and Dave Tippett have been added to the list while Claude Julien and Alain Vigneault have been dropped.
What a difference a few weeks make.
