Claude Julien is the most likely coach to get first first this season, according to the folks over at Bovada:

Coach Odds
Claude Julien (BOS) 3/2
Darryl Sutter (LA) 2/1
Todd Richards (CLB) 5/1
Mike Johnston (PIT) 11/2
Lindy Ruff (DAL) 6/1
Bill Peters (CAR) 7/1
Bruce Boudreau (ANA) 11/1

Any intelligent observer can tell that Julien is not the problem here and if anyone should get fired, Claude is behind Sweeney and Neely in line for deserving the ax. But this is sort of why he's still here: to get fired. It might be sooner than we think, though. The good news? Sutter might be right behind him and getting Sutter would be great.
