He's just not any good. Hall played tougher minutes and had a positive Corsi, and he had very normal percentages. Plus Hall is much faster and much better defensively and Eberle couldn't even gain the zone when Hall was out for injury. Hall is so much better than Eberle, I don't care what Eberle did in juniors.
I agree, but I wouldn't say 'he isn't any good' either. He'd be a great fit for this team right now for instance.

He's also very young, and while I suspect Hall will be better, Eberle has a lot of room to grow and improve his game. He's had a pretty solid start to his career so far.
