Ron Wilson Fired: 5 Reasons Todd McLellan May Be Next

Ron Wilson was fired Friday by the Toronto Maple Leafs after a 1-9-1 run took his team from the playoffs to three games out of the eighth spot in the Eastern Conference.

They scored just 24 goals (2.18 per game) over that stretch and allowed 45 (4.09). In a league where the magic number is three, they scored that many in just five games and allowed that many in nine.

He was replaced by Randy Carlyle, who was fired by Anaheim in the first half of the season. But it may be the man who replaced Wilson in San Jose back in 2008 that is next to go.
