But the team, most likely, is going to go 0-6 on this road trip (Ottawa on a hot streak, Montreal who've already beaten us), and then we're playing the Capitals.
1-9-1? A serious regression from Yakupov? An inconsistent swarm defence? PKs and PPs that have gone from some of the best to some of the worst?
Not saying I advocate him being fired. But there are some serious issues surrounding this team, and I don't think it lies solely with the personnel on the ice.
Ugh. Because I want to like Eakins. And I want this team to win.
At this point MOST of the blame has to go on the players. Guys like Hemsky, Nick Schultz, Petry, etc have been in the league long enough, and they should know how to get the puck out of their own zone by now.
