Wilson and Eakins do communicate, remember Wilson saying earlier in the year they go over strategies together. I'm sure Wilson knows what the Marlies do, either he is too stubborn to change after 20 years of coaching or he is simply oblivious to it isn't working. Eakins wants aggression, Wilson wants passive PK. Disagree about sounding ambitious to me, it was the Maclean and Kipper pressing him on commenting on the Leafs PK, he was just stating his coaching philosphy, he tried to not talk about the Leafs to avoid the appearance of critiquing Wilson. But one thing I really liked about the interview is the aggressive approach he preaches on the PK and challenging the PP.

Thanks, I posted these same stats before, when the #1 PK is brought up. It's a mixed bag really. Regardless it's been awful since he's been here.
