He's the kind of player that quickly becomes a fan favourite and the kind of player that championship teams have
The only argument I can see for Eakin being ranked higher than Faksa is NHL readiness. The things that Eakin is supposed to be good at Faksa is supposed to be better, almost across the board. Then you add in the size difference and it's pretty easy for me to put Faksa higher than Eakin.
We'll see in a few years but if everything pans out Faksa will probably be the 2nd line center while Eakin either plays 3rd line pivot or 2nd line wing.
