Still, it's nice to establish expectations.
I don't know, i think the talent is there to take a big jump in the standings. They just need the right leadership to steer them in the right direction. The lack of leadership from not only the coaching staff but also the core members of the old guard (way too soft) is a big reason for the recent failures.
I don't know if Eakins is the guy to steer them in the right direction but it sure does seem like he has the right intentions. Also, bringing in an on ice leader like Ference is sure to help as well.
