Here is the list of shooting % leaders with at least 40 goals to rid the list of small samples

Maybe Jordan keeps it up in the NHL but the numbers say probably not.

Eberle shooting 27% in his AHL time doesn't mean squat to any improved shooting % in the NHL over any sustained period of time.

I've seen clips of him, haven't seen him live.

Do the people that watch him play realize the difference between the AHL and NHL. It's obvious here that soem really don't.

How do you factor in the 3 NHL guys he is playing with?

The thing is that you can't and with Pollyanna glasses Oiler fans see this translating into instant NHL elite type of player which is possible but also extremely remote as well.

Your argument is supported by hope and mine is supported by some basis in reality and NHL statistical data at least.
He is tied with Jordan Eberle in points. Leading the entire league. As a defenseman.

Is Eberle not facing the same watered down competition as Schultz in the AHL? They are, after all, playing on the same team against the same opposition are they not?

Your argument is amusing, but not nearly as funny as seeing you try to spoon feed your jabberwocky to Fourier.

Now THAT, is truly freakin hilarious.

I trust you make yearly visits to the Lightning board, telling them all how Stamkos is going to "regress to the norm" one of these years, but he never does. Dont let that fact get in the way of a good story though.
