Although MacT made some good moves by bringing in Ference, Perron and Gordon, the hiring of Eakins was a big mistake. He should have given Kruger a chance to work with this group and see where he could take them. I think Kruger was a coach that the team would have progressed with and that this team enjoyed playing for.
I now look back and see why Burke made the decision to not hire Eakins to take over as head coaching job for the Leafs. Eakins at best may be a good assistant coach but not head coach material in the NHL.
