Eakin, a restricted free agent, is still without a contract in Dallas and Dallas GM Jim Nill said Friday that little progress has been made toward a new deal, according to Mark Stepneski of NHL.com.
With the acquisition of center Jason Spezza on Tuesday, Eakins will likely move down the depth chart to third line center.
Eakin received a qualifying offer from the Stars on Monday, making it likely that he'll be returning to Dallas.
Eakin nabbed the game-winner, adding an assist, a plus-2 rating, and three shots in Saturday's win over the Blues.
