The Washington Capitals fired head coach Bruce Boudreau on Monday morning and replaced him with Capitals fan-favorite and legend Dale Hunter.

Just a couple hours later, the Carolina Hurricanes pulled the plug on their coach, Paul Maurice. Maurice had previously coached Carolina from 1997-2004 and was in his second stint as bench boss. The Canes brought in Kirk Muller, who was in his first season as coach of the Milwaukee Admirals of the American Hockey League.

The two coaching switches on Monday has NHL fans and analysts wondering who could be next. There are some teams across the league that are underperforming despite having highly talented players, while others don't seem to be good at much of anything. Well, except for losing games.
