Good-Stick scout Steve Simmons mentioned today that Dallas Eakins' job in Edmonton could have been saved by the Oilers' three game win streak. There are other unrelated thoughts racing through my mind, but here's my question for you - how long of a losing streak does it take to end the Randy Carlyle era here in Toronto? Respond. Or, alternatively, throw us a question for next week.

Gather 'round, gather all, folks! For it is not just a Guys Night Out, nor is it just a Girls Night Out. It's both! No, but seriously - not to shill for a marketing team, but I appreciate that the Toronto Marlies made it both at once. It's just good inclusive marketing. Plus, you know, cheap beer, and hockey. It doesn't matter if the Marlies took on a team they still have ten more games against, and it doesn't matter if they lost that ga-.... okay, maybe it does. This wan't a particularly fantastic performance for the blue and white, who dropped the game by a score of 4-1.
