These two statements are at odds with eachother.

Eberle had help while OEL was, what, on the ice by himself? Strange cuz I thought he had one of the best goalies in the league behind him and a great defensive team in front.

Eberle has to prove more but OEL deserves full value for his strong year? Strange cuz I thought Eberle had played 17 MORE NHL games than OEL, all at a high level. Not to mention having proven himself as a consistently elite scorer at every level that he's played.

Why the different standards?

edit - also, what the guy above me said 30 seconds earlier...
