I see you're another who's enamored by Eberle's 30 seconds of greatness in junior.
Hall is so much better than Eberle it's not even funny. The Oilers are very smart to lock up Hall right now, before he's put up the counting numbers that would have gotten him an even bigger contract. If the Oilers are really smart, they'll wait until after this next season to sign Eberle, after his counting numbers deflate from their high percentages. I think Eberle will be closer to 50 points than 70 points next year, and then the Oilers can sign him to a reasonable contract, rather than one now based on his inflated totals from unsustainable percentages and pillow-soft minutes.
