Yes we're doing better with faceoffs years year. THat's the only thing where I can say we're better off this season.

Need to get more out of Hall, Yakupov, and Eberle. He needs to find a way to get that bottom six working.

I'm pretty sure that Action is only here because Eakins brought him in. Eakins needs to elevate that guy's play. it's not working at all for me. That's all on Eakins. Brown also needs to pull his pants up.

Ryan Smyth shouldn't have been on the third line last game. That's going way too soft on him.
Acton is on your squad because he shows the guys with all the natural talent in the world what it means to be a pro. Acton has worked his ass off to be a 4th liner in the NHL... his talent is marginal, but his work ethic is second to none. By having guys like that give 200% in every practice, Dallas is hoping it rubs off on guys like Yakupov.
