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?
there is the possibility (and he hinted at this) that his first month or two were met with resistance from many in the lineup. As a result of the many coaching changes (along with everyone constantly stroking them), these young guns probably have an exaggerated sense of power. Eakins comes in, he's a hard nose, and they don't like him.

its a plausible theory, anyways.
