I think Eakin would work well with Jagr and Whitney. Jagr and Whitney seem to have that old school sense clicking with plays and Eakin would be a great complement to Jagr's play which is too much like Benn's. I think that's why they aren't meshing as well and are always bunched together, whereas Ryder just kind of hangs around the net and the faceoff dot.
Yup. They are similar in the body control and shielding the puck, they seem to like the same parts of the ice.
reunite the louie ryder benn line and see what eakin can do with jagr and whitney.
