8 NHL Coaches on the Hot Seat

Paul Maurice has the Winnipeg Jets on the fringes of this year's playoff race. It's a fantastic turnaround; a team that looked done in mid-January (19-23-5) has gone 11-5-4 under the watch of a new head coach. It has all but guaranteed that Maurice will get a new contract, should he decide that he wants to remain in Winnipeg.

It's also the kind of turnaround that should make coaches inside the NHL nervous and those on the periphery excited. It's late enough in the year that most coaches will finish the season with their current teams, but several are likely coaching for their jobs at this point, and the summer will doubtless see several changes as general managers will hope for the kind of instant turnaround Maurice has authored in Manitoba.

Who is in danger of losing their job? The following slideshow looks at eight coaches who are at least at some level of risk in their current positions.
