The only 2 good reasons I can think of for not firing him now is 1)to protect our draft position and 2) a full training camp might be the best starting point for the poor bugger who inherits this mess.

Eakins should be given until the 20-30 game mark to prove he can improve this team next year if he is not fired asap.
The Oilers only had 10 points out of a possible 40 after 20 games played this season. I think it's too late at that point.

The Stars are in the last spot, on their way to approx 92 points this season. The Oilers would have 62 games left to get 82 more points, that's 41 wins and 21 losses, or a .666 win%. A 666 team finishes with 109 points, that's usually good enough for 1st in the league.

The right thing to do is fire Eakins immediately, I think we are all expecting to see major player trades instead.
