Eakins is NOT the man for the job. And this losing - whoever's side you're on - is gonna bite the Oilers in the ass for a few seasons if this nonsense continues.
He gets into it with the media - fine. Nothing new there. but he also gets into with the players - in front of the fans and he isn't very respecting of the Oilers history, or at least that's what they're saying out west.
Whether or not this is Eakins fault, he's gotta go. And it's only making hockey fans more confused as to why one the greatest franchises is allowing this crap to continue. The kids looked confused most nights out there. Who is their leader, because Eakins has lost them already. 2 seasons and he's proven he can;t cut it.
You never wanna see the Oilers or Habs in such disarray, being 2 of the greatest franchises sports have seen.
