Dallas Eakins Fired As Head Coach In Edmonton


I’ve been gone from this site for two weeks, and pick today to make a triumphant return to the “real” world. It just so happens to coincide with the exact date and time that Dallas Eakins is fired as the head coach of the Edmonton Oilers. After less than two and a half seasons, Eakins will ride off in to the sunset (with many years remaining on his contract). No replacement has been named yet although speculation of both Todd Nelson and Craig MacTavish have been mentioned.

In the event that Nelson heads to the NHL there is a great chance that Gerry Flemming becomes your head coach on the farm with Tony Borgford moving more to a bench role (currently doing both video, and bench for third periods)

More updates forthcoming as time marches on.
