Honestly Eakins seems like he'd make a much better assistant coach or co-coach in charge of fitness. The guy knows his stuff when it comes to conditioning and health but at the NHL level these guys honestly should know most of that already or should be getting that from the trainers and others specializing in that.

Eakins (or any other HC) should be almost 100% on systems and getting the most out of the players utilizing their strengths. I just don't see any reason to think Eakins is making progress and the team isn't any better now that they were in the 1st 20 games (other than obviously better goaltending).

Take Bryz and Scrivens out and put Dubs/Barbara back in and this team would be worse than when they started.

144 shots against in the last 3 games... I just don't see where Eakins and the assistants are progressing... AT ALL.
