What kind of game have Dallas Eakins’ Toronto Marlies played in the AHL?

Jonathan Willis
June 10 2013 10:52AM

With Dallas Eakins widely expected to be named as the Oilers’ new head coach today, his work in the AHL is of obvious interest to Oilers fans. What kind of style did they play? What were they good at? What could have been improved on?

The Overall Record

Season W L OTL GF GA SF SA
2009-10 33 35 12 193 261 2637 2467
2010-11 37 32 11 228 219 2765 2481
2011-12 44 24 8 217 175 2605 2123
2012-13 43 23 10 237 199 2410 2093
Total 157 114 41 875 854 10417 9164

Unsurprisingly, Eakins overall AHL record is quite good. The team has run up an impressive shot differential in all four of his seasons as head coach (a note on the shot totals: the AHL doesn’t record them by team, but they do record them by player – these are the sums of all shots taken by players in their games for the Marlies, and the sums of all saves of their goalies plus empty net goals against) and in three of the four years that worked out to an impressive goal differential. In Eakins’ lone poor year as an AHL head coach it’s worth noting the team went 14-10 in games where James Reimer (0.925 save percentage) recorded the decision and 19-37 in games where Adam Munro, Joey MacDonald or Andrew Engelage (0.905, 0.893 and 0.860 save percentage, respectively) recorded the decision.

Eakins teams win games by keeping the goals-against low, rather than by out-scoring the opposition.

Goal Differential

Season EV+ EV- PP+ PP- SH- SH+
2009-10 132 174 50 14 73 11
2010-11 168 158 54 14 47 6
2011-12 158 134 49 4 37 10
2012-13 167 137 61 8 54 9
Total 625 603 214 40 211 36

Goal differential gives us an inside look at where Eakins teams have excelled and where they have struggled. At even-strength, the Marlies started poorly in his first year but have steadily improved; 2012-13 saw them record a new high of plus-30 at even-strength.

Special teams have been a wash – mostly because Eakins has coached a brilliantly successful penalty kill and a stubbornly impotent power play. Twice he’s coached the best penalty kill in the AHL; three times he’s coached a bottom-five power play. Additionally, his penalty killers tend to score goals while his power play units tend to be scored on.

What About Player development?

Eakins gets solid marks in this department. Lowetide wrote a very nice piece on him yesterday; I’m going to quote two paragraphs:

Did the kids flourish under him with the Marlies? God yes. It has to be the number one reason he got the Oiler job. The list of players who adjusted quickly under his coaching and took steps forward is enormous for a coach with such a short (4 years in the AHL) resume… Is the total (16 players) good for 4 NHL seasons? Outstanding. Leafs certainly improved their chances by being aggressive in trades and college free agency but even with that the procurement and development department were certainly firing on all cylinders. During the same 4 seasons, the Oilers sent Devan Dubnyk, Theo Peckham, Teemu Hartikainen, Linus Omark, Jeff Petry, Justin Schultz. That’s 6.

How Is He as a Fit for the Oilers?

There is a lot to like about Dallas Eakins, and his strengths seem a fit for Edmonton. The Oilers have a long track record of being brutalized 5-on-5 and were especially bad last season; Eakins should have some ideas on how to fix that. The Oilers’ penalty kill, while improved of late, is looking at significant veteran losses (Horcoff, Jones, Petrell) in the off-season and despite decent percentages allowed more shots this year than last; Eakins has run a team with a very strong record of killing penalties. The Oilers have a very young core; Eakins has both success and experience as a developmental coach (he was also director of player development for a year in Toronto between coaching gigs).

The one area of concern is the power play. The Oilers power play the last two years has been quite effective, but much of that effectiveness has been based on converting a high percentage of shots rather than on generating a high volume of shots – and so there is good reason to be skeptical about how good it is. Certainly, the Oilers have a wealth of talent – far more than the Toronto Marlies – but there is little reason to believe that power play coaching is one of Eakins’ strengths. That’s far from a death-blow to his candidacy as head coach, but it does suggest that bringing in an assistant or associate coach with a history of power play success could be a wise move.

Recently around the Nation Network

Jeff Veillette offers an incredibly detailed breakdown of Dallas Eakins work with the Marlies - and the Oilers' long-term interest in the coach - at Leafs Nation. I'll quote his summary, but the whole piece is well worth reading:

Dallas Eakins has put in lots of time with the Leafs organization and on the Toronto Marlies, and produced some pretty impressive results. The farm system is in arguably the best shape it's ever been in, prospects are developing more successfully and more well rounded. He's a guy who cares about having everybody around him striving to improve. It would've been nice to see him stick around (I'd honestly rather have him up with the Leafs than Carlyle, but that's a topic for another day), but the Oilers are the team that wanted him, the type of team he wanted to join, and probably a match made in heaven. I wish him only the best, and know that he'll accept no less than that as he takes a once-great franchise and tries to bring them back to where they used to be.

For the last few years it seems the Oilers have lived and died on their Power Play; however, though their penalty kill has been decent, it also worked out to be a bit of a wash on special teams.

It will be nice to see a team that can get it done five on five.

In the first 10 PK's Hall participates in, he's going to take a shot off the foot and break it: Out 4 weeks.

The shot totals are indicative of a possesion mindset.

Some of those could have been well engineered two-fers, initial shots and well mamanged tactical rebounds, another sure sign of excellent Intuitive Dynamic managment tactics being implemented.

A possesion focus can lead to smothering defensive projection as it evolves if managed properly.

In 2009-10 he started using a possesion style.But he couldnt get the defensive transitioal managment dialed in, he accomplished the possesion part of the equation he was looking for but the defense was to porous for systemic reasons they couldnt master the 1st d-zone transition out. He outshot the opponent but didnt outscore him because of these transitional disconnects.Smells like fast break influence.

In 2010-11 he continued to evolve the pressure of the possesion style and began to fine tune the defensive transitioning properly, using dynamic managment tactics,this resulted in increased shots for and a maintained shots against with little change, however this time due to a higher % of sucessful possesion to shot conversions supported by an improved defensive playaction transition he outscored the opposition as he should.

In 2011-12 he implemented a new tactic and added to his style, he began to pressure the opponents in a new way that resulted in their having a reduced number of possesions and he refined the offense even more and began using dynamiclly managed two-fer shot tactics.

The last year he hit a perfect balance and was using Intuitive Dynamic Managment tactics on a systemic level. Less use of the two-fer shot tactics and more finishes into open nets and more terminal system induced goals.A defense that controlled and managed the puck slightly better held on to it a bit longer,likely a switch to a controlled defensive first transition stlye moving away from a fast break transiton style and definately made a higher % of zone transitions that were converted into shots on net. This last year the pace and momentum of the games was managed at an entirely new level because all of the proper components of Intuitive Dynamic managment had been implemented inn a defined and sequential order,with a specificlly designed series of dynamic evolutionary changes.

MMMmmmm, now where have I seen this Dynamic Template before...?

I cut my post in half because i am not giving away the entire Tactical Dynamic Template we might be using.

I mean we are all just looking at numbers right so I am only guessing like everyone else.

Oh boy is this going to be an exciting year, I dont believe anyone really has an accurate idea of just how much this addition could change the way this team plays.

I am glad you can see some symmetry in the interpretation i posted of the data in the article.

No I havent made a proper job request anywhere yet. Not a formal request.

I am an Intuit and I dont believe that NHL teams are ready to accept this input as being valid and tangible.

I use Intuitive Dynamic Analysis to catalyse an anticipatory mindset that i present in a systemic manner.

I could look into it , what would you suggest I call this ability or commodity when i am writing to them? Just where would one send such a request? What e-mail address?

You shoukd see the ways you can dissect a teams system influences via their stats sheet prior to a game, it is unbelievable what you can accomplish with that data if you know how to build a Tactical Dynamic Template.

Liked Ralph despite the holes in his coaching but think that Eakins may be what the doctor ordered.

I'm not worried about the PP because if Eakins system doesn't work out, the kids are creative enough with the puck to put up goals and Krueger's system should still be fresh in their minds to fall back to, if necessary.

What I am wondering about is how Eakins signing will affect MacT's RFA trade and UFA signing strategy-- will he now target veterans in the ages 26 to 32 range to compensate for the kids relative inexperience or will he go hard after the ages 21 to 26 group of RFA's (via trade or offer sheets) to build a core that will grow together?

Any idea on how Eakins used his veterans on the Marlies line up? Did he have a good veteran core to work with or did he have to "coach up" his young players?

at any rate, shot and chance differential has got to improve this year as it felt like we spent a huge amount of time playing defence while opposing teams peppered our goalies.

They really need to improve their shot differential and likely by extension, their 5 on 5 scoring.

They were outshot by nearly 300 shots last year (and that was a shortened season)! The Swiss rope a dope didn't work.

If Eakins can fix that, the Oilers should improve a lot.

I look forward to seeing an actual forecheck and some cycling rather than trying (usually unsuccessfully) to always speed through a neutral zone trap.

Its fair to say that we won't have a coaching change for a while (if only because they can't change the coach AGAIN next year).

Hey JW, would Eakins consider hiring Todd Nelson as an assistant?

The guy knows our kids and has made the playoffs in three straight seasons (Eakins 2 of 4)...I'm sure they know each other having coached in the same league for awhile.

When will Nelson's reward come? No offence to Bucky/Smith but hopefully they aren't retained (IMO).

i dont really give two sh!ts about a couching change. I am pumped to hear about how horc/hemsky are going to be moved out, and for whom.

Not that i'm against having those 2 guys on the team, but it would be nice to see them move on (for both our sakes).

ps: The closer we get to the draft the more i think we should keep our #7 and take Monahan. Let a 50% retained salary HOrc trade and Hemsky trade bring in the couple vets we need.

You mentioned that three of their 4 goalies over that span had abysmal save percentages. Perhaps the goals against number is inflated by that.

The weird results were in 2009-10 and to a lesser extent in 2010-11. The problem in these years could be blamed partly on weak goaltending as mentioned in your article.

In 2011-12, the shot differential was +482 and goal differential was +42. In 2012-13 the shot differential was +317 and the goal differential was +38. These scoring results seem reasonable.

The Hawks havn't played the Bruins yet!Although Boston is smaller than L.A.,they play tough hockey on four lines.

L.A. can play the suffocating game, however they did not really play the rock em sockem game that they did against the Blues.

I would hope the new look OIlers watch a lot of Bruins game films..learn to play 200 feet of hockey.Also Bruins do not spend a lot of time in their own end of the rink, and play hard on the puck in all zone.. unlike some of the flyby Oilers.

You might be onto something. I bet a smart NHL team would kill for this kind of information. Have you ever tried to contact a team for a job on their tactical staff? Tell me more!

If you get turned down by the NHL sign in the KHL. The poor interpreter's head might explode right off his body.

The shot totals are indicative of a possesion mindset.

Some of those could have been well engineered two-fers, initial shots and well mamanged tactical rebounds, another sure sign of excellent Intuitive Dynamic managment tactics being implemented.

A possesion focus can lead to smothering defensive projection as it evolves if managed properly.

In 2009-10 he started using a possesion style.But he couldnt get the defensive transitioal managment dialed in, he accomplished the possesion part of the equation he was looking for but the defense was to porous for systemic reasons they couldnt master the 1st d-zone transition out. He outshot the opponent but didnt outscore him because of these transitional disconnects.Smells like fast break influence.

In 2010-11 he continued to evolve the pressure of the possesion style and began to fine tune the defensive transitioning properly, using dynamic managment tactics,this resulted in increased shots for and a maintained shots against with little change, however this time due to a higher % of sucessful possesion to shot conversions supported by an improved defensive playaction transition he outscored the opposition as he should.

In 2011-12 he implemented a new tactic and added to his style, he began to pressure the opponents in a new way that resulted in their having a reduced number of possesions and he refined the offense even more and began using dynamiclly managed two-fer shot tactics.

The last year he hit a perfect balance and was using Intuitive Dynamic Managment tactics on a systemic level. Less use of the two-fer shot tactics and more finishes into open nets and more terminal system induced goals.A defense that controlled and managed the puck slightly better held on to it a bit longer,likely a switch to a controlled defensive first transition stlye moving away from a fast break transiton style and definately made a higher % of zone transitions that were converted into shots on net. This last year the pace and momentum of the games was managed at an entirely new level because all of the proper components of Intuitive Dynamic managment had been implemented inn a defined and sequential order,with a specificlly designed series of dynamic evolutionary changes.

MMMmmmm, now where have I seen this Dynamic Template before...?

I cut my post in half because i am not giving away the entire Tactical Dynamic Template we might be using.

I mean we are all just looking at numbers right so I am only guessing like everyone else.

Oh boy is this going to be an exciting year, I dont believe anyone really has an accurate idea of just how much this addition could change the way this team plays.

So, Gary Busey...is it a Tactical Dynamic Template he should be using or the Intuitive Dynamic Template. I'm confused Gary Busey. Please elaborate.

I am glad you can see some symmetry in the interpretation i posted of the data in the article.

No I havent made a proper job request anywhere yet. Not a formal request.

I am an Intuit and I dont believe that NHL teams are ready to accept this input as being valid and tangible.

I use Intuitive Dynamic Analysis to catalyse an anticipatory mindset that i present in a systemic manner.

I could look into it , what would you suggest I call this ability or commodity when i am writing to them? Just where would one send such a request? What e-mail address?

You shoukd see the ways you can dissect a teams system influences via their stats sheet prior to a game, it is unbelievable what you can accomplish with that data if you know how to build a Tactical Dynamic Template.

"I am an Intuit and I don't believe that NHL teams are ready to accept this input as being valid and tangible."

What does being Inuit have to do with NHL teams accepting your input as being valid and tangible? Are you insinuating that NHL teams are somehow biased against Inuits?? That's a bold (and wildly inaccurate) statement that you better be prepared to back up.
