Eakin impressed me a lot in the mem cup but he's the more likely out of these three to be a 3rd liner I bet (he's less skilled imo but more of a complete guy).
Hard to call MoJo a prospect for the purposes of this discussion, though, since he's already the #2C.
I'd be curious to see if they ever consider moving him to the wing if he doesn't develop a better faceoff skillset (not saying he won't), or whether they just grin and bear it as long as the rest of his game stays at a high level. Kuznetsov can play C if they need him to, even though organizational depth might more naturally push him to RW in the near term.
