While I don't think Krueger was the right coach to take the team to the next step, Eakins has been a disaster.

I've said it all along, if they were going to replace Krueger they needed a tactically strong systems coach with enough experience to gain the respect of the room. Putting a minor league blowhard up against 3 young players earning over 6 mil a year was bound to fail.

If I were Lowe I would have kept Krueger for the start of the year, and if the team failed to improve, I would have brought Laviolette in as soon as he was sacked by the Flyers (then again, maybe he would have refused to play for the gong show management team).
