if you do something like that which is so without grace the other had better be Scotty Bowman. Instead the Oilers mortgaged the farm, sold credibility, and hitched everything to an entirely untried rookie.

This is not on Eakins, its not his fault, but this situation was going to be "in deep" and the Oiler hired a guy with no experience.

Meanwhile look who they got in calgary?
A guy who hadn't been coach in several years?

Hmmm...
