I know Yak has been playing terrible, but he is playing on the third line with Ryan ****ing Smyth who can't make a pass to save his life nor be open to receive one. Eakins talks about Smyth like he's the hardest working guy and that he "had" to bench him because he was going to be the only one who wouldn't ***** about it. We've won our only game when Smyth was out of the lineup, and because he scored 2 goals last game (I bet) he will be played for the next 5. Eakins needs to open his eyes and bench Smyth, and give Yak players to feed him the puck so he can rip it.
At same time its hard for a coach to sit your leading goal scorer and ppg player who is averaging 13 min a night. I think he plays till he starts killing his line imo.
