Eakin's Training Creed - flop or future?


A question to all the CnB's out there...

When coming in to the NHL, Eakin's was touted as having a strong training ethic, committed to fitness as a means to compete at the highest levels. I've been unable to see many of the Oil games this year but the ones I have seen appear to show the Oilers constantly getting beaten to the puck and then unable to move the opposition off of it. I've got to wonder - is this merely the lull before the training work shows results, or is it an indication that the training concept is not working as well as it should be? A generic question to be sure, given that you can add in injuries, lack of depth in the bottom 6 resulting in overplaying the top, positioning vs. conditioning etc. but if one is to assume that the Oilers are committed to out-training the other clubs, there should at least be some indication of that on the ice.

From last Friday's 'tweet session' with #askeakins we get the following:

Not yet – @dallaseakins RT @henderson_shane Are you satisfied with team's fitness level? #AskEakins

So it appears that it has yet to kick in to the level we are to expect but I'd really like to hear what those closer to the non-MSM have to say.
