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.
I agree, like I said in a couple threads yesterday, I am at a loss. Eakins cannot be this big an idiot. He's just lost the room and lost in the woods himself I believe. The players are for sure the wrong mix. That needs tearing down and rebuilding (there's that word again).
Wrong players. Wrong coach. This all equals dumpster fire.
