And if I'm Edmonton then yeah I'd trade Eberle or Hall for Myers. Not necessarily because he's better than them but they have 3 friggin 1st line wingers there assuming Yakupov develops into that and they have a bad defence.
Myers as a 21 year old ('11/'12): 0.279 Corsi Rel QoC
Schenn as a 21 year old ('10/'11): 0.392 Corsi Rel QoC

The point is both players have been inconsistent defensively throughout their careers (I'll concede Schenn is more inconsistent) Myers somehow gets the benefit of the doubt whereas people just think Schenn sucks even though there's only a 3 month age difference between them. I believe Myers will be a much better defensemen by virtue of his offensive skill, but I don't think they're that far off defensively.
