Oh, and he had a fantastic rookie season.
You'd be looking at Staal, if not Staal+, to get Eberle to NYR.
Keep in mind I said it would take a ridiculous overpay to get Eberle. He has too many intangibles that make him virtually untouchable.
Paajarvi isn't quite in the same boat, but I doubt Del Zotto is enough either.
It's no shot at any of the players mentioned by NYR... but the Oilers aren't in any hurry to deal either of them.
