Eberle recorded 43 points in 69 games this year... he could have had a 50 point rookie season if he didnt get hurt... He is already a good second line right winger and he could be a good 1st line right winger as early as next year. He will be a consistent 70 point getter... they would never trade him for a couple prospects and a mediocre second line centre.
I laughed out loud at the bolded.
We have the camp that overvalues every young player we have, and the camp who purposely undervalue all our young players so they don't look like homers.
MDZ's rookie year was just as impressive as Eberle's and he was a year younger. Anisimov outscored Eberle this season and has a good 6 inches on him, and Thomas has exponentially better junior stats then Eberle did at the same age. And they are virtually the same size.
Is Eberle worth more then each of these 3 individually? Yes, but to say that package "isn't even close" to landing Eberle is utter cluelessness on your part.
