Craig Berube's seat became too hot to handle this week, as the St. Louis Blues fired their longtime coach (with whom they won the Stanley Cup in 2019) on Tuesday night.

It wasn't something GM Doug Armstrong wanted to do. But at a time when trades are hard to make due to parity and the salary cap, it can be the easiest remedy for a team's ills -- especially since the general managers that build these underwhelming teams won't fire themselves.

Berube was the third coach dismissed this season -- joining now-former Edmonton Oilers coach Jay Woodcroft and Dean Evason, dismissed by the Minnesota Wild -- and might not be the last.
