I'd also disagree that Eberle has proven himself an elite top 10 winger. We're talking about 2 seasons here, and he clearly had some help in putting up those numbers.
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?
