I want to make a case for Eakin at, if not number one, a higher level than most seemingly have him

I may be underrating Chiasson and Faksa but I don't consider either first line material offensively, I think they are 2nd/3rd liners who can contribute offensively but strengths are elsewhere

I also think that describes Eakin, he plays hard every night, forechecks and back checks well, and has underrated offensive skills in my opinion

The Caps utilized him in a checking role but I think given the opportunity he could be a solid second liner

Basically I think his offensive ceiling is similar to Chaissons and Faksa's and he has a decent chance of making the team this year

I haven't decided if he's my number one because I think that potential wise both Campbell and Oleksiak could be blue chippers however in my opinion he should definitely be in the top 5 and of the comments so far most have him much lower
