Who knows what about him?

​Considered an up and coming coach. Was hired in the Soo by Kyle Dubas.

Formerly a pupil of David Frost alongside Mike Danton (Jefferson).

I like it.

I have heard he was looked at by several other clubs. Young up and coming individual with a nose for development.

This will be the first coach the Leafs develop with an eye toward draft pick compensation.

Did they not get compensation when Edmonton hired Eakins?

​Nope. NHL didn't have compensation rules for head coach / GM / president hires at that point.

We all should have seen this coming. Its been talked about all year. His pedigree in the minor ranks is pretty good.

So, the new strategy is to acquire up-and-coming coaches, and develop them - with the goal of having someone else hire them, so that we receive a draft pick compensation.

Interesting.

They're talking about re-structuring the draft pick compensation part.  Maybe getting rid of it just for fired coaches...or possibly getting rid of it altogether.

Typical.  Leafs finally do something right and try to capitalize on this market and it might get yanked.
