We haven't improved at all. Goaltending is the only reason our record in our last 11 games has been good. Once goaltending comes down to earth, we will be losing again. Our former players also criticizing our practices should be a huge red flag. First Smid, then Trotz calling out Dubby, then Bryz and now apparently Nick Schultz said something too? Just brutal. Maybe once we let Bucky and Smith go and get some former vet coaches, we will start seeing some improvements. But as of right now, this team hasn't improved under Eakins and he is in way over his head.
