Toronto Maple Leafs: 5 Candidates To Replace Ron Wilson

Ron Wilson has been coming under fire again lately over his team's play, or lack thereof. Maybe it is time for a change.

Wilson, who currently sits in eighth place on the list of all-time coaching wins, has become one of the most despised coaches from a fan's perspective in Toronto since John Brophy.

It may be that he seems arrogant, or perhaps it's the fact that he seems to use the wrong players in the wrong circumstances. There is no way that Colton Orr should be necessary every single game.
