The list of speculated new Flyers coaches grew by one over the weekend, as Sportsnet's Damian Cox reported the team's interest in hiring former Edmonton coach Dallas Eakins.
It's easy to look at a coach like Eakins and be skeptical. After all, he didn't accomplish anything but last-place finishes with the Copper and Blue, as well as a mid-season firing on Dec. 15. His career record behind the Oilers' bench stands at an abysmal 36-62-14 -- just a .321 winning percentage.
The first round of the 2015 NHL playoffs is almost completed. This past weekend, five more teams punched their tickets to the conference semifinals. Chicago, Minnesota, Calgary, Montreal and the Rangers all won their respective first round match ups. This leaves just two first round series left to be decided.
