Did not expect Oilers to have their legs in 1st to many days off, They will look a lot better in 2nd and 3rd.

And replace him midseason with whom? (Honest question)

The only option I can think off the top of my head would be Peter Laviolette.

Petry looked pissed off that he couldn't cover Helm after that first goal. Could see the rage on his face.

Smid did a horrible job of covering the rebound on the second goal. This team's defence looked way better last year and I'm certain that our blueline is improved this year.

Get rid of this coach now.
The forward, usually the center, is suppose to tie up the guy coming through the slot like that. It was Gagner and Yakupov though so the end result is obvious.

This team can't do anything with competence. It is getting sad to watch.

So how long does Eakins realistically get? Or MacT for that matter?

Petry, our big top two pair D man stinks as much as any of them. Terribly inconsistent player.

Eakins will get 2 seasons. MacT will probably get 3.

MacT said when he fired Krueger that he will be judged by the decision to replace the coach. If Eakins goes, MacT should get fired too. This is disgraceful.

Two years and forever, respectively. Mac-T will just get shuffled up to Lowe's position while Buchberger becomes GM.

Eakins is definitely part of the problem. I agree the players suck though.

Can we call this year 1 of the rebuild so that we don't have to feel so embarrassed by the lack of progress in the past 3-4 years?

All season is how long he will get. The oilers will flood out the excuses no matter how bad we are. Next year if he starts of badly macT will take over. I will say one thing, as I predicted the moment mact was hired back on this team, he will be behind the bench sooner or later.

Coach and GM not adding the right players? I have not seen this team perform with any kind of competence.
