Is Taylor Hall a coach's worst nightmare?

4 décembre 2019
The New Jersey Devils announced on Tuesday that they had fired head coach John Hynes and replaced him with Alain Nasreddine, who was already behind the team's bench as assistant coach since 2015-16.


Taylor Hall is now playing for his eighth coach in the NHL, all in just 10 seasons. Essentially, that means that every head coach who has had Hall under his tutelage has had a shelf-life of 1.25 years. The group of assistant coaches that Hall has seen in his NHL career is also abnormally large.



Of course, it's not actually Taylor Hall's fault each time a coach is fired, but, nevertheless, the statistic is striking. The reality is that we all know that there are several other factors besides the performance of an individual player that contribute to a head coach being relieved of his duties. It's also worth noting that most of the coaching changes Hall experienced were at a time where he played in Edmonton for six seasons during one of the worst phases of the club's history.

Hall's comments regarding Hynes' dismissal definitely provide some insight into what the relationship with his coach was like. The forward said he was surprised to see Hynes let go and gave credit to his former head coach for the Hart Trophy he won in the 2017-2018 season. Hall also thinks Hynes will get back to work in the NHL in the near future.



The Devils could not give their new head coach his first win on Tuesday night, losing to 4-3 to the Golden Knights in New Jersey. The Devils did, however, lead 2-1 heading into the third period. With this defeat, Nasreddine's squad is still resting firmly near the bottom of the league in 30th place, five points ahead of the pitiful Red Detroit Red Wings.
