It's kind of funny, typically the only arguments in favor of Eakins are because of continuity. They have nothing to do with him being a good coach.

He's basically sacrificing a first overall pick (Yakupov) and using him as a scapegoat for a lot of the team woes to try and succeed. If we were a playoff team, I could see placing development on the back burners, but as the 29th place team this is inexcusable. Average to below average coaches are a dime a dozen (it's not like were talking Hitchock or Babcock), where as first overall picks are not. I know which side I would pick.

I also think its very telling that none of the core youth have defended Eakins this year.
