Chicago Blackhawks head coach eery Colliton is public enemy #1 in the city after another dismal start to the season.
There was some reason for optimism heading into the Blackhawks season. The team added the likes of Marc-Andre Fleury, Seth Jones, Jake McCabe and got Jonathan Tows back from injury following a mediocre 2020-21 season.
But Jeremy Colliton’s group has started the season 0-3-1, and the head coach was heavily booed during the team’s home opener.

Despite fans looking for the team to fire Jeremy Colliton similarly to how they fired Dennis Savard just four games into the 2008 season, early indication is that he’ll remain the coach through the year.
"They're not panicking here. Now, if it gets to 20 games and they're still seeing the same results, maybe we'll see a change, but it's not a situation if they lose two of the next three, that Jeremy Colliton would be on the way out." –@emilymkaplan

Chicago Blackhawks fans will undoubtedly be filled with rage to hear that Jeremy Colliton isn’t in jeopardy of being fired, and he’s not even on the hot seat at the moment.
Obviously, Colliton was put in a tough situation replace legendary coach Joel Quenneville. But the Blackhawks built a roster to contend for a playoff spot in 2021, and if Colliton can’t win now, it’s a bad look not just for the coach, but the entire organization.
