I think you're both right. If Eakin ends up as a #2 center I think he'll be one of the better ones in the league, the type who would be #1 on a number of teams. The way I see it happening is late in games/tight situations we'll see Eakin taking faceoffs between Benn and Eriksson.

On point, I really like Eakin the more I watch him. He plays that gritty two-way style with high hockey IQ you love to see. I doubt we'll see him with a letter next season but he looks like a core part moving forward.
