If Wilson was still at the helm, I'd agree with you that staying with Eakins would be the better choice to work on his defensive game. With Carlyle, though... Who knows.
That's just it though.. Everything's changed on the Leafs now with Carlyle there. That's why I just want one person in his ear for a full year and let him get a complete game together. You know Carlyle and Eakins are working together right now to get these guys ready for the majors. Not like there will be a season anyways..
