It's not like he took 600 shots last year.
He can still maintain a 30+ goal season.
Because Marek Svatos? Lol. I don't think "take more shots" is quite as easy as it sounds. If his SH% regressed a measly 3%, he'd have to take 35 more shots on net to hold 34 goals. Now, I think Jordan Eberle is just a naturally good shooter, so I'd expect him to shoot anywhere from around 12% to 15%, using TCAB's data. Which is pretty good. He just didn't take a whole lot of shots last year, which is more problematic when you're not shooting a 19%. So while I think Eberle is a great player, I'm not trading John Carlson for him after one season.
