He does fit into one of your groups - the one with guys who exclusively shoot super high percentage shots. The volume of shots he takes is pretty low.
For those two reasons, he has a high SH%. It will likely regress but not to the level that you assume. Furthermore, taking his SH% and applying it to a volume shooter like Iginla to project Iginla's potential goals is one of the most egregious misuse of statistics I've ever seen on this site.
Eberle is a great player but he is not top 5 anything yet.
