After a disappointing loss to Kyle Dubas' Pittsburgh Penguins, the Toronto Maple Leafs are just 10-6-3, good for 5th place in the Atlantic division. With the team struggling more than anticipated, some believe head coach Sheldon Keefe's job is on the line.

Insider Predicts When Leafs Will Change Head Coaches

Fans and media personnel alike are starting to grow tired of Sheldon Keefe as the Leafs head coach. One must wonder if Brad Treliving and Leafs management is starting to get the same feeling. NHL reporter Howard Berger believes that the Leafs will make a coaching change by the end of the calendar year.
It won't be entirely his fault, but Sheldon Keefe cannot last with an AHL-caliber blue line and unproven goaltending. #Leafs will have a new coach by January 1. #LeafsForever

Can The Maple Leafs Win With Keefe As Head Coach?

In fairness, the question of whether or not the Leafs can win under Keefe is genuine. While the team has consistently put up very good, but not great regular seasons under Keefe, they've only ever won a single playoff round. Their single season playoff wins record under Keefe is five. As such, fans of the team are starting to seriously question his fit for this team, especially considering their slow start to the season.
I refuse to believe #LeafsForever will win anything (Conference title, Presidents trophy, Stanley Cup) under Sheldon Keefe.

I've watched a version of todays game WAY too many times. One game this year (VAN) where I could see a potential Cup contender.

Looking at the Atlantic division standings - 18 games in the #LeafsForever have FIVE regulation wins TOTAL. They are like 3-4 goals away from being seriously underwater and Sheldon Keefe getting fired. Talk about living on a prayer.

While there has been no indication from the team that Keefe's job in in jeopardy, if the Leafs struggles continue, perhaps Keefe's days in Toronto will be numbered.
