I highly doubt it was expected or accepted that there would be an noticeable "learning curve" for the Head Coach. You don't hire guys into the best league in the world, with a built in "figure-things-out-clause".

An NHL Coach is expected to be 100% prepared and bring new & improved insight(s) into a vacancy.

We didn't hire Eakins in the vein of development.

We hired him because (according to Mac-T) he was the BEST possible candidate and he was supposed to make a positive impact right away.

It is clearly not going in that direction. Not at all.
