I can still picture that absolutely lifeless loss to the Flames on home ice when they had kids with about as much NHL experience as you or I.
But the club was better statistically in every way, better PP, better PK, more points less GA and had significant injury trouble.

If Eakins encountered that same situation I don't even want to think about how bad it would have been.

The Oilers played for Krueger and battled hard. With a much worse lineup than we have this year.

I wonder if Krueger would have this lineup in current contention for a spot.

Lets not forget the club had ALL WC teams last year.

Do you want to know what our WC record is under Eakins?
