I think Eakins will stick around. Family is in the city, he knows ownership and management and there is a mutual respect there. Coaches don't make a rediculous amount (compared to players) so I don't he could convince himself that moving elsewhere to an unknown team, management, and structure would be worthwhile for a guy his age with a family.
And I think he will get his opportunity with the Leafs. Coaches don't last forever unless you are Lindy Ruff.
