It's not your fault.

As anyone reading this almost certainly knows, on Monday the Oilers dismissed head coach Dallas Eakins. It’s the most significant change to the team in quite a while, and it’s a very good bet that the changes don’t stop with the head coach.
However, it’s also a very good bet that the changes stop somewhere well below Craig MacTavish and Kevin Lowe.

When you are a 30th place team every aspect of your team game is below average. This season the goalies, defence, forwards, coaching, scouting and management have all been underwhelming. Today, Dallas Eakins paid the price for the shortcomings of the team and was fired, but he is far from the only one who needs to improve.
Which area needs to be addressed the most?

Dallas Eakins was set up to fail as coach of the Edmonton Oilers and he most certainly did, prompting the Oilers to fire the second-year bench boss 113 games into his tenure with the team this morning.

The Oilers have fired Dallas Eakins. Craig MacTavish will take over as head coach. He will be the only head coach/GM in the league.
I understand why they let Eakins go, his record was 36-63-14. They gave up too many goals and didn't score enough, but the Oilers have many other issues.
