BRING OUT THE SLEDGEHAMMER!

The Edmonton Oilers have a lot of nice pieces on their current roster, but the 2013-14 was a learning experience. For everybody. GM, Coach, franchise player, role player, butcher, baker and candlestick maker.

DALLAS EAKINS ROSTER USAGE VOLLMAN SLEDGEHAMMER (F)

oilers 13-14 vollman sledgehammerClick to enlarge, it’s a fascinating graph. This is Corsi Rel, so there’s a lot of blue but we’re comparing team/rest of team here.

  1. Eakins gave a zone start push to all of the reasonable options. Hall, Nuge, Eberle, Yakupov, Perron, Gagner. That’s the heart of the order folks, and he gave them the at-bats with men on base.
  2. It is true, and it follows, that opposition coaches also made sure their best personnel were out there against the heart of the order. This is textbook stuff, but it’s important to establish what actually happened during the season.
  3. Boyd Gordon earned every damn dollar. He’s a man. Love that guy.
  4. Ryan Smyth, in his last season, delivered in his role—and it was not an easy one.
  5. Matt Hendricks was a welcome addition. Whatever he delivers in the future, he played well as an Oiler in year one.
  6. Tyler Pitlick shows up in a tough part of the graph. Interesting.
  7. Anton Lander has a nice blue bubble and he certainly didn’t get a push, but I’d like to have seen his zone starts on that 4line for awhile longer. Again, and not to drive home a point that’s driven deep, I just don’t think they see him as an option.
  8. Mark Arcobello. In the words of Stephen Stills, there’s something happening here. I’m not saying he’ll score 50 points, but he could be a very useful NHL player.

RALPH KRUEGER ROSTER USAGE VOLLMAN SLEDGEHAMMER (F)

ralph sledgehammer

Interesting to compare. Eakins got Boyd Gordon instead of Horcoff, but he also used Ryan Smyth more productively. Ralph appears to have gotten some softer minutes for Yakupov, but one suspects he would have asked more of him as they progressed together.

QUESTIONS

  1. How do you feel in general about Eakins handling of the forwards?
  2. Is there anything obvious he was doing wrong?
  3. Was it wise to flush Smyth after this season?
  4. Should the Oilers acquire a veteran winger for Gordon/Hendricks foxhole?
  5. Is it worth it to consider finding Hall a stronger, more mature center, and using Nuge with Perron/Yakupov?

Anything else?

    1/2. While the numbers prove Eakins did a good job at zone starts, qualcomp is another matter.

    Also not using a shutdown line vs. the opposition’s best (though he didn’t really have the horses to do so), the inane usage of the 4th line, the facepunchers requirement, the mishandling of Acrobello and the juggling of the kids instead of keeping our best line together and line matching them at home vs. lesser competiton proves that he’s not a good game-day coach.

    Plus there’s all that everyone can play 20 minutes a night nonsense…

    I hope MacT can constructively evaluate Eakins’ performance and give him a path to learn from his mistakes..

    3. Yes, let Smytty go out on his own terms, he doesn’t have the wheels anymore, and thankfully this puts a stop to him lining up at center.

    4. No, we need Hendricks on the 4th line to rekindle the Glencross. – Brodziak – Stortini mojo and Gordon needs two top-flight shutdown wingers on the 3rd line, many of which are available in FA. Plus Eakins would need to see the usefulness of such a line.

    5. That would be a great idea. We need veteran mentoring in the top six just as much (if not more) than in the defensive corps.

    Hall, Nugent-Hopkins, Eberle
    Kulemin-type, Gordon, Perron
    Yakupov, Gagner or replacement, Pitlick/Joensuu/Horak/newplayer
    Hendricks, Lander, Arcobello
    Gadzic

    Two tough minutes lines.
    One soft minutes line.
    A 4th line for D-zone starts against the non-top line of the opposition.

    More balanced zone starts for that Gordon line, which you want to cycle and sustain zone time in the opposition end. i.e. Defend less, but using Gordon’s face-off ability offensively by playing him with two strong cycle players in a Kulemin-type and Perron.
    i.e. defend less by playing more in the opposition end.

  3. cahill says:

    godot10,

    I am thinking alone the same lines. Get an excellent “3rd” line that can provide offense when the 1st line is facing the toughs.
    Kulemin(type)-Gordon-Perron (I think is a line that can handle the toughs and score at evens.)

    Get a good tough zone start “4th” line:
    Hendricks-Lander-Gazdic-Horak-Arcobello-Additional pickup (I think these guys with the exception of Gazdic could handle that role).

    Two guys that would be on my forward wish list are; Kulemin & Goc.

  4. Ryan says:

    How do you feel in general about Eakins handling of the forwards?

    By eye, Eakins wasted a lot of offensive zone starts sheltering his miserable 4line.

    Is there anything obvious he was doing wrong?

    See above. We’re talking during tied games.

    Was it wise to flush Smyth after this season?

    Yes.

    Should the Oilers acquire a veteran winger for Gordon/Hendricks foxhole?

    Yesterday.

    Is it worth it to consider finding Hall a stronger, more mature center, and using Nuge with Perron/Yakupov?

    Yes please! We’ll take Stastny or even Grabovski.

  5. Mr DeBakey says:

    godot10: Kulemin-type, Gordon, Perron

    Vancouver would probably do David Booth for Kale Kessy.
    Booth’s Cap Hit is way higher than his PPG [percentile-wise]
    Plus, Booth is one of the prior regime’s mistakes.

    In another town, Tyler Kennedy hasn’t dressed for the Sharks in the play-offs.

  6. VanOil says:

    From my admittedly non expert opinion I would like to see at least the 7 following tactical changes from Rookie Coach Dallas Eakins;

    1) Do not start the putrid 4th line in response to a goal against. This is petulant and tactically stupid.

    2) Do not ice a putrid 4th line. Even raw kids who might make mistakes are better than players who can’t play.

    3) Though there was early Corgi success with the Swarm the Kennel still stank. The Eakins Swarm as well documented by Kevin McCartney’s brilliant pre-season article is better called the ABANDON THE FRONT OF THE NET AND HOPE SYSTEM http://jetsnation.ca/2013/10/1/systems-analysis-different-looks-at-the-swarm

    I am not against aggressive modern puck possession and puck moving defensive systems. But abandoning the front of the net is folly, as both shot distance metrics and common sense tells us. The Oilers defense improved markedly with the addition of the Nelson coached Marincin who kept it simple in his own end and stayed in front of the net. Mr. Eakins do not play a system that has all players abandon the danger zone.

    4) What ever you were doing to help Nuge and Gagner at the faceoff circle hurt the team, see Dellow and stop it. Hire another face off demon like Malhorta if you want to win more draws.

    5) Try Bruce Boudreau’s high/low double forward puck pursuit system instead of the swarm. see Dellow.

    6) Make up your mind that passing ability is more important than punching ability in a modern NHL defenseman. Do not ice Mark Fraser or others of his ilk.

    7) Hire someone else to coach the PP, your track record is poor. A 1D PP only works if the 1D can actually play D, i.e. not Schultz. Any team as talented as the Oilers should have a great PP. Not having one should be seen as a major failing in coaching.

    You could also read my constructive criticism and see that most of these problem would be solved by better talent, in players and assistants, at Eakins disposal. But I am old and senile and often watch the news at 10.

    Believe it or not, I want to believe what you’re saying.

    I just can’t shake the feeling that Eakins had better talent than Krueger, a training camp, a mixed east/west schedule, and he managed to deliver significantly less. I wasn’t a particularly big Krueger fan to begin with, but Eakins has totally turned me off.

    I mean, can anyone name a coach who came into a team that was bad, led it to a worse record, and retained his job? I understand this isn’t empiric evidence of Eakins being bad at his job (for that you’d have to turn to MC79), but between that empiric evidence and the visual, he’s a bad coach. The only thing he has going for him at this moment is Taylor Hall’s endorsement, because Craig MacTavish’s opinion flies about an inch further than Kevin Lowe’s in this town, these days.

    Eakins was hyped and his execution was underwhelming on all fronts.

    Is Eakins an nhl coach? I don’t think so, but he’s getting more rope from Mact.

  12. OilLeak says:

    I’m not ready to announce Hendricks as anything more than a 4th liner. Hendricks spent all of his time with Gordon, and we all know that Gordon is pretty much superhuman. I’m not so sure Hendricks can play the toughs without Gordon carrying him around. Hendricks on the 4th line I’m ok with, Hendricks on the 3rd line is higher than his established talent level and that is Sooooo Oilers.

  13. Caramel Obvious says:

    Boyd Gordon’s best skill is winning faceoffs. Considering Gordon’s general lack of offensive skill the best place to deploy that skill is the defensive zone. Any usage pattern other than what Eakins did would be very stupid.

    So what I would do is throw out the outdated and meaningless verbiage of numerical lines. I would put Gordon, Hendricks, and one other defensive type specialist and make them my “defensive zone” line and I would give them as much defensive zone starts as I could while not caring about the opposition match up at all for the forwards. Eakins got this part right.

    It would look like this:

    Hall Line (I focus on giving them playing time and not worry about matchups with them I also don’t care as much about defensive zone starts since they are my best line off the rush)

    O Halfcourt line (Perron, FA center, Yakupov) Perron is a half court player, not as fast or as good on the rush as Hall and company, I give them maximum offensive zone starts to take advantage of Perron and hide Yakupov. I play them with a center who can do better than Gagner on the draw.

    Change on the fly line (Gagner, Lander, Arcobello, whoever is left over) Gagner isn’t good at draws but is pretty good on the rush, so I get him out there on the fly with guys who might be able to finish. This is also your “small” line since the more free flowing the game the less of a disadvantage size is. You could put Yakupov here as well if you found a better player than him in free agency to play with Perron.

    D Halfcourt Line (Gordon et al)

    That’s how the Oilers should organize their forwards. Even out the playing time, mix and match according to the demands of the game, everyone plays and everyone contributes without succumbing to arbitrary numbers that mean nothing.

    Caramel Obvious:

    This was Eakins strategy after Hendricks arrived and paired with Gordon, and the Oilers Corsi and Fenwick as a team fell off a cliff. The strategy was a failure, overloading Gordon and Hendricks witih D-zone starts.

    There is more than one way to defend. One can defend more effectively by playing in the other teams zone more.

    Give Gordon two wingers (Perron and a Kulemin clone) who can cycle the puck in the offensive zone and give them a hard line match against a good line and balanced zone starts, and use Gordon’s face off ability and the cycling ability of two good wingers to play more in the opposition end,

    meaning one spends less time defending.

    Go reread Tippett’s comment on comparing two defensemen.

    A 4th line of Hendricks, Lander, and Arcobello has 3 guys who can take a draw (they can be aggressive) and three guys with reasonable defensive awareness.

    Using Gordon’s faceoff ability only in the D-zone, means one is giving up the O-zone too easily. Use it as a sword, not as a shield, or as a sword and a shield, instead of just a shield.

  15. VanOil says:

    Marcus Oilerius,

    Unfortunately we are stuck with Eakins for now. The GM got his man.

    My interest right now is in him improving. Sadly in what I call the Don Cherry era we as hockey fans are not much privy to intelligent analysis of tactics. I really miss Howie Meeker and his telestrator.

    It would be interesting if new fangle analytics guy who is interested in representing the effects of different systems/tactics on shot differential , such as Dellow, teamed up with a numerically astute systems expert like McCartney and provided some break downs of systems and there success rates.

    There seems to be a building collection of evidence that Pro coaches in all sports are too conservative in there tactics. We know some coaches are getting real time analytic during the game it would be interesting to know what they are doing with this information.

  16. Lowetide says:

    One thing history teaches us is that people can learn from their mistakes and improve. Eakins did not have a good season, but he also lacked the horses in several area and the goalies were ghastly. Not saying he’ll flourish, or even survive in Edmonton, but he’s young, smart and determined.

    I don’t believe his returning next season is a universally bad thing.

    Couldn’t the same thing have been said about other coaches employed by the Oilers the past few years? Did Renney get a fair shake? Kruger? 48 games to turn that gong show around? WTF.

    Lets assume for a moment it hasn’t been any of Eakins, Kruger, or Renney’s fault for the dismal showings. Or lets even just assume there was jack that Scotty Bowman could have done different.
    Where does the blame lie then?

    Yet there they sit. All snug and cozy on their little Oiler thrones. Safe in the knowledge that unless the team begins hemorrhaging money their employer hasn’t got the sack to do a damn thing about it.

    Remember when the Hawks canned Savard when JQ came available? 4 games into the season no less. Coach acquisitions are no different than player acquisitions. If you have a chance to better yourself by making the move you should do it.

    Tend to agree but I don’t like the arrogance he shows with nothing to back it up . as for the team I think McT let Eakins have Acton . Hamilton & Fraser who all got failing grades .Eakins didn’t use Arco the right way after Gags came back from a very bad injury . The truth is he could have eased Gags back in if at all, and that early . Yea his back but it’s on him to improve the PP & the PK and if he can’t he should be gone . All the rest is important , shots for and against etc etc but when you go from a top 10 in PP &PK to were we ended it was totally disappointing .LT you say people can learn from mistakes and I sure as hell hope Eakins does because he made a lot of mistakes . Maybe it’s on the assistants but if it is tell McT you want to change 1 or all of them .My opinion

  20. bendelson says:

    Can MacT make enough positive moves this off season to balance this team and move them forward?

    No. Last summer he made a couple of nice moves and the team still wasn’t remotely close to balanced. This year, it is the same story. UFA’s Kulemin, Grabovski, Winnick and Fayne likely doesn’t get them close – best of luck MacT.

    Can Eakins take another imbalanced roster, develop a system that works, get universal buy-in from the players and move them into the playoffs next year?

    Hell no. If he manages survive another season, I’ll be shocked. SHOCKED!

    In other news, I am having a really bad week stuck in the armpit of Alberta.
    Fuck.

    The idea that Eakins should be fired hasn’t really come to the forefront, it’s been the assistants that were targeted from what I’ve seen and read.

    Maybe there will be a ‘fire Eakins’ portion to the summer if STL or SJS fire their coach. I’d bet money Eakins is back in the fall, with a better lineup and some lessons learned.

    Arrogant coaches are rife in the NHL, so I’m not concerned about that part of it. The major concern I have is the tone of management about the team improving as the season wore on. there’s no evidence of it, and if they have a pedestrian procurement summer, that’ll tell the tale about Eakins and MacTavish.

    they won’t get another summer imo.

    Brave bet with a Klowe wild card in the deck. Lets hope good procurement saves us from finding out.

  24. Zangetsu says:

    There’s a lot less deep reds than I would have guessed. I hope the mentality around the fourth line changes over the summer though. I hope Eakins thinks about what he said the other night about needing toughness and looking at other teams and not knowing, Imagine if we could shelter boyd gordon a little with a 4line that isn’t hell on earth.

  25. Ca$h-Money! says:

    Zangetsu,

    I look at Montreals 4th as a good model. Moen briere weise. Tough agitator veteran, small skilled c, big/fast winger who isn’t a big time fighter.

    That could’ve Hendricks/Arcobello/Pitlick. It’s not an even match but the formula is the same. 30 or 40 games with Gazdic in the lineup should be enough.

  26. gcw_rocks says:

    If we hear him throwing players under the bus and deflecting blame from himself next October or November we will know how much he has learned. Players have a short tolerance for that sort thing.

  28. russ99 says:

    Ca$h-Money!,

    I’m thinking Hendricks may be a better center than Arco in that pairing if we’re following the Glencross – Brodziak – Stortini blueprint that MacT knows is successful.

    in that case I’d run with a fourth line of:

    Arco – Hendricks – Gazdic/Pitlick

    or even better:

    Hendricks – Trevor Lewis – Pitlick/Gazdic

    With Smyth retired we’re down one more NHL center. (kidding!!)

    IMO, it would be a good move to add another veteran bottom six center, since injuries happen and then we’re bringing up a kid to center an NHL 4th line, and we all know how that turns out.

  29. Woodguy says:

    It looks like Eakins was trying to do what Quennville does in CHI, but the disaster of a 4th line fucked it all up.

    You see the ugly mushy middle of Jones, Joensuu, Gazdic, Pitlick, Lander and Acton all seemingly floating like floatsam in the nebulous bottom left quadrant with only Lander looking like a hockey player.

    Give the man his horses so that he can get a team of four horses to pull the cart.

    The off season will only get wackier if the Sharks piss away game 7 tonight. Many out in Lala land would have you believe that Logan Couture is the next coming. Some have said he is better than Hall. All that sunshine and lollypops dims a guys brain I’d say. Where the hell has he been the last 3 games? I am pulling for Sad Sutter and his Miserable Bunch tonight.

    The off sseason for me begins with the CHL playoffs. I like to see how our picks have performed. Then I look at the also rans and ask myself what are they lacking and how can we screw them. Then the Draft and Free Agency.

    I see Toronto as a huge off season player once again. The Jets need Yakupov. They lack a pure goal scorer. Would Boogosian be available is the question. The Jets cannot just do nothing as has been their like these past 3 years. They have some nice pieces but all but one lacks any high end skill.

    The Nucks off season I think is going to be huge. I think they Kesler is gone along with half a dozen other players. It will be a blood bath in Van City.

    The Sens are as strange a duck as you’ll find. Noteam Identity this year at all. Good luck trying to figure that mess out.

    What about two “3rd” lines and a soft minute 4th line / secondary scoring line;

    Hall-RNH-Eberle

    Gagner_Trade (Colin Wilson)-Goc-Perron
    Greening-Gordon-Hendricks
    ———————————
    Gazdic-Lander-Arcobello-Yakupov-Horak

    Greening is going to be available and he’ll be cheap, the fans in Ottawa HATE him, likely a mid-round. pick. He’s a guy that they should target, low PDO, his Pts/60 are lower than normal. Similar player to David Moss.

    Is this a realistic off-season that upgrades our team?

  34. rickithebear says:

    At the start of the year: i statsed;
    studies show a win in Oz one generates .5 shots per.
    A face off win in Dzone prevents .5 shots per.
    neutral zone FO wins and carried zone entries produce.37 per.
    we need Gordon to take strictly OZ and D zone draws.

    Hall was most successful with a good FO Center with good assist ability.
    Horcoff; gordon; Arco.

    I worked in the Bay area for several years. the differences between North and South are so profound that there was joking talk about North and South splitting to form 2 separate states.

    Lala land had a strong conservative bias, esp. Orange County. North was very Democrat. South is known for its beaches, North for its scenery and wildlife. The water off the North beaches is way cold, and there’s a lot of great whites around that feed off the seals. The preservation of nature in the north is breathtaking, whether in the pristine streams flowing through Redwood, or the beaches around Monterrey or Half Moon Bay, or off Highway 1 that runs south along the coast from San Francisco. Then there’s NAPA Valley, with its wine farms, and cheese shops to go along with the shady picnic tables under the oak trees. South has Hollywood. North people drove to Lake Tahoe. South drive to Vegas. That’s it in a nutshell, as it was to me when I was there.

    San Jose Sharks were an oddity, a long was behind the champagne and caviar 49′ers with Joe Montana and Steve Young, and their across the Bay, blue collar rivals, the Oakland Raiders.
