Ah, there it is. Like a warm blanket and a mug of tea in front of the fire on a cold day...
But I also agree with the first part too. We've all had those days where tons of bad things happen and we're all able to soldier on, but then something little happens like you bump into a wall on accident and all of a sudden EVERYTHING IS THAT GOD DAMNED WALL'S FAULT AND *punch punch* I WILL BRING IT DOWN LIKE THE STINKIN' PATRIARCHY THAT MADE IT!!!!!1111111
Or Eakins is just a giant douchenozzle. I haven't decided yet.
Either way, he made himself look like an ass on national television.
I like Eakins. There was that one time he said his idea of a perfect game is one where his team doesn't have to throw a single hit. The Edmonton media doofs, being Edmonton media doofs, were totally confused, and it was awesome.
I don't think he's quite ready for success in The Big League. Certainly the Oilers were a bad fit. I think one thing the Oilers have to realize is that they need a top-end NHL coach, e.g. Laviolette. Renney, Krueger, Eakins - these are, IMHO, guys who were picked because of a lack of clout, i.e. Ownership/Management wants guys who will "know their place" and not question stuff and make a big fuss when it becomes clear that everyone at the top of the pyramid is incompetent. I'm not blaming Eakins, but I don't think he's the right man for the job. To turn this sorry-ass sack-of-s*** team around, they're gonna need a guy who really, really, really knows what he's doing.
