Lack of synergy and consistency both on and off the ice. Too many people are on different pages.

The most glaring of these synergistic problem for me is Eakins. He's a good coach, he proved that at the AHL level. However, I don't think the Oilers main core is built for his style of game and I don't know if they'd ever excel at it the way he needs them to for his system to work. Don't get me wrong, the players need to play better, but I think the current issues start with coaching.

edit: And I wanted to add I think a coach like Peter Laviolette, who's won with some very stacked offensive teams, with marginal defense, would be a great option. He might not be the long term answer but I think he'd be a solid improvement.
