The veteran forward will be an unrestricted free agent next summer and a rental in 2021-22. Eakin is a 30-year-old bottom-six centre who can play a decent shutdown role. The Winnipeg native only had seven points in 46 games last season. Regardless, expect the Sabres to trade Eakin before the trade deadline for a mid-round pick and a prospect.

Patrik Laine

The reports out of Finland this summer indicated Laine wanted to get back on track after a bad season. The sniper has the potential to score 50 goals per season and must find his consistency to remain a first-line winger. He battled with Torts last season, but now he gets to call Brad Larsen his head coach. If the Blue Jackets struggle this season, expect Laine to be traded.
