But in fairness to Eakins, one of the things he said in an interview with Gregor when Gregor asked him what he learned most so far this season and his answer was 'just to breathe.. and try not to be too intense' which he admitted was difficult to do with his fiery attitude. Its his first season in the NHL so I'll give him some leeway right now. It does seem though that the team is starting to buy into his gameplan more now, so it'll be interesting to see how this goes from this point forward.
someone paraphrasing that the players hate him based on the other quotes is a gross exaggeration. It is simply what everyone has said all along, 5 coaches in the past 6 years means the players are not likely to listen to the coach because there's no accountability.
