And Sbisa doesn't really belong with those other guys IMO. Gardiner is a better defenseman than him at the moment and likely will be in the future too.

Also, at least 16 teams can say in hindsight that they should have picked Eberle. Everyone but LA, TB, Ottawa, Stl. Louis and maybe Buffalo.
Gardiner is not a better defenseman than Sbisa is right now. In the future, definitely a possibility, though Sbisa will always be the more physical player. This is coming from a huge Gardiner proponent btw.
