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.

Ya, I have to agree. They should have pared the roster down a lot sooner and given the team a chance to gel. I was kind of surprised when Eakins mentioned the first practice in which systems play was discussed was the practice before the last preseason game against Dallas. Probably not a surprise they have been all over the map. Throw in the god awful goaltending and its the perfect **** storm.
