That might have been one of the few things posters would agree on. I think I was being generous in saying 6 months till next year. IMO, he needs to have some leaps and bounds or have some serious injury issues up top to move above P. McNeill to even get call ups.
But wasn't Eakin a stout faceoff guy at juniors? Feel like that facet of his game would traslate to the pros and he's already a competent two-way player. I don't feel its too risky giving him a spot if he earns it.
