I love this and the Derek Roy deal. This feels like a Playstation hockey GM deal ... you trade a center rated "80 overall" for some young assets and then immediately sign a UFA rated "78" for basically the same cash. Net result short term is the trade assets (Eakin + 2) for free. This isn't big-money Ryan Suter / Zach Parise stuff, but I think it's really savvy.
