In my post you could substitute the names of any enforcer/tough guy that the Oilers may replace Eager and Hordi with.

I'm hoping that Krueger will hold opponents accountable for their actions and I think he will.
It is my belief that Krueger will turn some heads around the league when it comes to getting the best out of players. I am not giving Eager a pass here but giving krueger the chance to turn Eager around.
The point is clear, and it seems as if you missed it, that Eager is completely useless. No coach is going to change that.

Note that Hordichuk, with a fraction of the minutes Eager got had more hits, fights, and impacted meaningfully during his toi. Eager did next to nothing with his.
