if you do something like that which is so without grace the other coach had better be a Scotty Bowman can't miss type. 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. They let go a guy that had way more experience.
Meanwhile look who they got in calgary?
Who was the guy with way more experience?
Uhhh, there's only been one Scotty Bowman "can't miss type" and that was ... Scotty Bowman.
Stick with Eakins. He's indescribably better than Krueger. Miles better than anything Renney or Quinn did here.
Eakins will mold the team to win if given the time ... and a non-brutal goalie.
