Honestly, I think Eberle will be a slightly better offensive player, while Couture will be a better two way player. Certainly not enough to trade a first with Couture for Eberle from San Jose's perspective. But you have to remember that the Oilers have valued Eberle at around the same value as Hall, because of his clutch performances and because he is a life long Oiler fan and less likely to bolt as a free agent or ask for a trade. Its not just the on ice play at work here.
