Eberle is definitley considerably more valuable than those you mentioned I think because he put up more points than all of them in his 21 year old season. That's impressive. He's got another year at cheap money and under the team's control for a few more to follow. Plus there is the upside factor with him. 70+ in his 2nd season. Who knows where he goes from here.
Eberle as an undersized, one-year wonder, must be considered amongst the possibilities. That's the reality, for any young player, until 70-point seasons become the norm.
