Always appreciate someone taking the time to post an analysis of the game.

I, too, am worried about Eakins right now. It's just shear luck, imo, that Gagner had the faceoff % he did tonight... when I learned that Eakins took Arco off the C duty, I was livid. If Gags can keep it up, then fine... but what the hell, why demote one of our highest scorers to the third line? And give Jones the top line mins? Just crazy. Seems to me that Eakins is rewarding experience as opposed to play. Gags gets the Center duty instead of Arco once he returned, Yak getting 3rd line mins when Smyth for top 6 to start the season.. Jones getting top line tonight, Arco 3rd?

I dunno. Seems like he's not being very smart out there... go with what's working.
