the fitness thing has been so overblown. I remember watching a documentary on the '06 team that went to the Finals. A lot of the players mentioned fitness being a huge reason they went far because by the time the playoffs came around they weren't worn down. I think the Oilers have had horrible luck this year. Holtby stole the game for Washington last night.
We aren't firing Eakins, guys. Don't even bother suggesting it. Players will move before he does and
I think it's time for a bit of a shakeup. A move that will change the look of the team a bit because something about the roster right now isn't getting results.
We've had the same kind of team for four years.. it's time to make a big move.
If we're making strides in the right direction and have had rotten luck, why do we need to shake up the team? Wouldn't it make more sense to stay the course and wait for the luck to turn around as opposed to making a drastic move? Seems contradictory to me.
