INCLUDING CALGARY!

Do you realise that we are historically the WORST team in the entire expansion era of this sport?
You are both right and wrong. This org has been run very poorly for years. That has to change...like yesterday.

Nothing is being done? I cannot agree with that, if you are referencing the players of the team, and even Management. MacT has changed a crapload of personnel on the team. Pretty much the entire lineup. Including Bucky and Smith. Not to mention Dellow.

As far as management, I view the Bob Nicholson hire as quite a major change in the way things will be run around here. I could be wrong though.

Time will tell.

I think the oilers need to show some faith in their coaches and hold players responsible for bad plays. I don't think in the Eberle, Hall, Nuge era these guys have ever felt threatened. They have LT contracts and when the fans get restless the coach gets thrown under the bus. It's a bad culture. I would like to see them establish some solidarity and trust with the coaching staff. It's up to management to establish an all for one attitude within the organization this year. IMO

If the Oilers are competitive at the TDL Eakins keeps his job. Anything less and he should be gone. No free pass this year. Sure there are holes to be filled. That's been the case for each of the last 20 seasons.

It's pointless to keep Eakins around if the team can't make progress this year. The regression last year was palpable. Last year's debacle can be excused if the team proves it has bought into his system with their play this year.
