...So what you're saying is that it doesn't make sense that the Canucks would trade Hansen except in exchange for a serious overpayment?
Obviously, Eberle is absurd, but I still don't understand why people don't get that a team isn't likely to trade away a player unless they either a) want the player gone, or b) feel that they're winning the deal. The Canucks aren't going to trade Jannik Hansen for some guy that is functionally identical to Jannik Hansen except for that they don't know what his favourite movie is.
