Or Eberle who's rights are maintained for guaranteed 5 years more, longer if the owners get their way in negotiations with UFA.

Chara may have more value around the league or to Boston but in Edmonton its Eberle > Chara
None of that makes any difference to his trade value at all. Or we could say, Chara has been a top 3 defenseman for the last 3-4 seasons at least, and likely will for another 3-5 seasons easily... so Chara >>>>>>>>> Eberle (which he is anyways).
