Now Eakins has to mix-up the lines and the players have to find their games and gel with real points on the line.

I know it goes against standard practice but this ****** start may have been avoided by using the pre-season to get prepared for winning rather than finding our way during the start of the regular season.

**** tryouts. Get the team ready to win before the games count.
You really want our best players out on the ice in meaningless games where other teams are dressing Neanderthals trying to make a name for themselves. Wasn't just losing Gagner enough for one preseason?
