All joking aside if Eakins is the coach here beyond this season we will see some of the youth that we have accumulated dealt to build the team around Eakins vision. ****ing awesome!
Eakins is here to the start next season, no doubt about that. Now if the Oilers are at the bottom of the standings after 20-25, then there is no justifying it. On the bright side, we are slowly cleaning house with new assistant coaches possibly coming in. Stauffer has hinted towards that and I hope he is right. If Eakins can get this team to even contend for a playoff spot next season, it's not bad. If we are in the bottom of the standings after 20 games or so, I would lose all faith in MacT. Should have just kept Krueger and hired new assistant coaches and see what he could have done. If he failed, at least Laviolette would have been available (perfect coach for this team IMO).
