Another season and another first round playoff exit for the Toronto Maple Leafs this past season. Doesn't matter who the head coach is, it's been ending up with the same result since the 2016-17 season.In fact the Toronto Maple Leafs haven't won a playoff series since the 2003-04 season. The team is entering it's third season under head coach Sheldon Keefe and second full season with two first round exits under his watch. Leafs' general manager Kyle Dubas said this offseason that he believes the core group can get it done and didn't make any major changes this offseason. That means all eyes will be on Keefe throughout the season and NBC Sports has him on the hot seat. NBC Sports put together a list of all NHL coaches from safest to person in the biggest danger zone and while Keefe didn't find himself in the "danger zone", the Leafs' head coach found himself in the "getting a little warmer" category."It feels like everybody's seat in Toronto is getting warmer. The coach. The general manager. Star players. Time to do something."If the Leafs get off to a slow start, do you think Keefe could find himself fired?
