Head Coach Hunt: Dallas Eakins

Dallas Eakins has driven some divisive opinions within the Ducks fanbase ever since he signed a multi-year extension (rumored to be three years) to continue coaching the San Diego Gulls.

On one side are the people who look at his track record in the AHL as a coach who has led the Gulls to a 154-95-23 record over four seasons and who’s teams tend to play a high-octane, exciting game with players who almost universally rave about the type of coach and general human being he is.

On the other side are people who see a disastrous stint behind the bench of the Edmonton Oilers deploying a confusing and flimsy defensive scheme to go along with a history of not winning big games when it matters with the Gulls.
