There has been a flurry of coaching changes in the NHL this season, and there will certainly be some more at season's end.
A total of eight coaches have been fired since October, and for the most part, teams have improved under their new leaders.
Perhaps the biggest success story this year is the hiring of Ken Hitchcock in St. Louis. After a 6-7 start, the Blues fired Davis Payne, and under Hitch the Blues are 41-13-9.
Here are the four teams likely making coaching changes this summer in hopes of recreating what Hitchcock has done in St. Louis.
