Sven single-handedly brought the team back from deficits three times in that series, always scoring the important goals. He was the only offense going for Portland. The Oil Kings are a heck of a team and have great goaltending and defence. They'll be even better next season.
You don't think he has Eberle potential? Why not? It's not like Eberle was picked first overall here. Both are similar in height and stature, and play very similar games. They can both stick handle in a phone booth.
Of course Sven has a long way to go before he reaches the calibre of Eberle, but right now I see no reason why Sven can't be as good in the future.
6 years (probably 8) without a competitive team to cheer for can make a lot of people delusional.
Btw, Eberle is 5'8 and he's skinny as hell. See him in Edmonton quite often. He won't last long in the NHL if he doesn't put at least some muscle. Even though he's "skinny" he seemed kind of pudgy...showing that he lacks any semblance of muscle definition. He's going to start getting creamed next year the opposing dmen. Baertschi at least has a frame where he can tack on some mass.
