IMO, if you were going to let go Kruger then you needed to axe the entire coaching staff.

The coaching change itself wasn't 100% of the problem. The real issue is that the cuts didn't go deep enough.

If we would have axed Tambo, Kruger, Smith and Buchburger in the offseason. Brought in MacT and a completely new coaching staff. I could have lived with that.

However, in the Oilers organization, they are incapable of making any decisions whatsoever.

So we only fire the head coach. We name 6 assistant captains. We don't solve the goaltending situation until the season was lost. We stick with a defensive system that is clearly not working. So on and so forth.

At this point, everything Eakins says is just noise until the team starts showing results on the ice. I don't think I've seen two games in a row where the team played a full 60 minute hockey game.

Chop Wood. Carry Water. Even if it means your slamming your head against a brick wall.
