I'm inclined to believe the coach isn't the problem. Edmonton has gone through coach after coach. You have to look at the management at some point.

I really don't think Eakins is as bad as he's looking right now. That is one poorly built team.

Here's how you lose in the NHL. No goaltending, no defensive system, no dmen. That's Edmonton. Replace Eakins with a top 5 coach and that team would still be ass!

Picture Montreal without Price and irresponsible forwards who don't play D.
