I think most of those guys you listed are best suited for bottom 6 roles whereas Akeson is better suited for a top 6 spot with the right line-mates. A couple yrs down the line, who knows, we might see a Akeson-Couturier-Schenn 2nd line or something (they played well together on the Phantoms). to me if he can round out his game a bit more that line could have a nice mix of size, physicality/toughness and offensive flare. to me Akeson is a complimentary piece so to speak, he'll work best with the right line-mates. just a thought
