MacT big bold move will be if he has the guts to fire Eakins next year if the team does not show a big improvement!
I honestly don't know if anything is going to change as long as these athletes continue to run this team. It doesn't always work and when it does, it's usually when they've surrounded themselves with great scouts, assts, etc. this team doesn't have a lot of that. It's why I always stress they need at least two more great hockey evaluators like Waddell or Barnett.

As for Eakins, I'm guessing we'll see Mactavish on the bench pretty soon. After the break maybe??
