Maybe not but it would seem to be he best league to compare to the Nhl as it is the most similar as you say.
Also when looking at a player you need to look at the whole picture. The whole picture with Eberle is he has been a star at every level, has scored at every level and has had a high shooting % at evey level. He has elevated his game at critical moments. In short he is not just a star, he is clutch. I think anyone underestimating Eberle does so at their own peril of looking foolish later. I dont do any trade that involves Ebs unless it is so rediculous an overpay that no sane person could say no.
