It sounds like Anton Belov's decision to leave Edmonton was at least partially inspired by a desire to get away from coach Dallas Eakins.

Belov signed with the KHL's SKA St. Petersburg. "There is no one reason that made it an abrupt change," said Belov, per Sovetsky Sports. "It was all building up during the season, especially more so after the Olympics. And the hire of coach (Vyacheslav) Bykov (at SKA) was also an influence. The other point is that I could have re-signed with Edmonton, but I didn't want to stay with that coach." Eakins came under fire for the Oilers' underwhelming performance in his first season as the team's bench boss, but he is still expected to return for the 2014-15 campaign.
