Eakins' small sample size of what? The modest 7 game not-totally-sucking streak, or the 60 games so far this season? The 7 game streak is mainly due to Scrivens, without him two of those games are lopsided defeats and it goes from 5-1-1 or whatever to 3-3-1. Overall the 60 games are garbage, and it's not like it's just bad, it's awful.

The Oil gave up 48 goals in the first 12 games, that's 4 per game.
They have been shut out 7 times in 60 games and scored 1 goal 9 times.
They have allowed 4 goals or more 31 times.
They lost by 3 goals or more 17 times.
Their gf/ga is -46. Last year was -11.
Right now 13 games under .500, last season 3.

How many Oilers had good seasons under Kruger? Noone was in the "has to go" category.

How many this year? Fans are livid with Gganer, DD is already gone, even Eberle is reportedly on the blocks. Fans don't really like anyone on the team right now.

Not sure if there are any categories where the team is even close to what it was last year under Krueger, but we all know macT will stay the course with Eak and make player trades instead of manning up and admitting he made a mistake.

This is horrible and it just keeps getting wprse.
