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.
i guess you didn't watch eberle during the world jr tournaments, because eberle was the leader on that team offensively.

and even in the nhl so far eberle has been better offensively.
