What are you basing that on?

There have been plenty of players well over 15% in their careers that were not even close to generational scorers.

Guys like rob brown, ray ferraro, tanguay, Gary Roberts, mark hunter, and a few others had 18+% over their careers, none remotely close to being generational.

Heck, there are about 20 guys with higher %s than Mario.

It's pretty simple, there are factors to consider other than pure skill, and it's mostly the fact Eberle doesn't shoot that much compared to others who had 30+ goals last year and he doesn't take unnecessary shots.
