What a loser Russian. This team needs more Canada, less enigma.

Also, we're not trading him. He's a superstar in the making.


Is anyone else concerned that so far, five games in to this season, Hall seems to have lost his game, Justin Schultz hasn't played well, and Yakupov is now in the doghouse? Oh, and we've lost four of five?

I'm not usually one to blame the coach, but there's a lot of systemic things that bother me early this year, and I worry that this is a guy who feels the need to justify the verbal fellatio he got from the Toronto media that got him his NHL shot. If he's seen to be "molding" young stars, then they're way more likely to still believe he's the next coming of Scotty Bowman.

I do think it worth noting that while he's quite demanding, you didn't see a power struggle between Joel Quenneville and Patrick Kane when Coach Q took over the 'Hawks.

Too much talk about systems, too much focus on pointless strategies like not running lines for fear that Carlyle - a coach who has gotten his team outshot in almost every game in the last calendar year - might be able to craft some unbeatable gameplan and then the first coach to healthy scratch a second year first overall pick in a decade? It's not a good start at all for Eakins. I hope it settles down soon, because this team could use some stability for a change.


If we go back to a previous thread and suggestions by some media, perhaps this is somewhat of a power struggle that needs to occur. Is there a chance that the inmates have been running the asylum? Perhaps these young guys haven't been cooperating with coaches as much as they should be and the organization wants this to change. To use your comparison, perhaps Kane knows his job is to play as the coach and organization wants.
