Can someone fill me in on what is going on with this club? I read an article a couple weeks ago about some possible drama between coach Eakins and Yakupov? Maybe you guys need some veteran presence up front, and definitely a better goalie.

Good luck to your club! Give Eakins the benefit of the doubt, he really is a great coach. He did so much for the young guys on Marlies that are now on the Leafs (Kadri, Gardiner, etc). He's great with young players.
I'm starting to not believe that. That's twice he's matched up our top line against the other team's top line and they went -4.
