At some point you just have to realize that its maybe not the coaching that is the problem here. We could put Mike Babcock back there and I doubt he could make the Oilers a playoff team with this roster. This team needs defense and more size in their top 6 in a bad way. I blame management more than I do Eakins for our poor record.
That said, theres quite a few things about Eakins that I don't like. I don't really like his arrogance, his stubborness, his treatment of Yak, his line combinations, and how he seems to have taken the fun out of coming to the arena. With Krueger, even though the Oilers were a bad team too.. at least it seemed like the players genuinely liked him and they were still having fun, smiling and enjoying the game. This year the players just seem so unemotional at times and just not enjoying the game anymore.
