Per NHL Source close to the situation, Dallas Eakins has signed a multi year contract with the Edmonton Oilers

I'm gonna guess

Bylsma, Stevens, Tippet, Ruff, and Torts

Is who Gillis is going after now.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

I don't mind Gillis taking his time with everything... But he's taking TOO much of his time finding the right guy.


For example, if you're gonna deem Schneider as the starter, at least trade Luongo away to make it clear to everyone that Schneider is the starter. I don't want Luongo gone, but it would've made it a lot easier for AV to know who to play night in night out and not rely on flipping a damn coin

This guy would have been so perfect for the Canucks.... Kassian, Jensen, Gaunce, etc would have developed so nicely under him.. Oiler fans are laughing at us on hf boards for Schultz and now Eakins... lol. And rightfully so.

Yes, but it would of been nice to deny the Oilers of having the perfect coach to develop their young stars.. Gf league.

eakins is perfect coach of edmonton oilers.. oilers has lots of young talent and eakins with ahl experience can coach young group really well. I really wanted eakins to be our assistance coach/headcoach too late.. now tippet will re-sign with phoenix so i dont know who is going to be our coach.. (no to ruff and torts)

John Stevens is the best imo. Have to wait until LA is done in the playoffs.

Like what others said, perfect place for Eakins because he is supposed to be great at developing young players. They can grow together. Good signing for Edmonton but honestly, didn't see it coming. Was looking at the obvious places like Vancouver, Dallas, ... teams with no coach. MacT pulled off first good move.

Well now the Oilers will likely win a cup within the next 5 years.

Perfect coach for developing their stacked young core.

Again Gillis' patience will leave him with nothing, just like with the Luongo trade.

MG waits too long for almost everything he does and then is left to go with option Z.

He's gonna make a nice transition... From one AHL team to another.

It all makes sense :P

MacT just said they haven't formalized anything

Eakins is a great fit for the Oilers just like Stevens is a great fit for the Canucks

Not that I feel bad for their AHL coach or anything... But doesn't this sting for Todd Nelson? their coach in Oklahoma?

Do you guys know what happened behind closed doors? What if Eakins interviewed with all of those teams and the decision was left with him? Can you guys read minds? Let's not throw the blame at Gillis without actually knowing all the facts and what was said behind closed doors....

Eakins is good for a young team, He isn't the coach for us.
