These "top __" lists are always subjective, but he's the only active defenseman other than Chara and Weber to finish top 10 in Norris voting the last 2 seasons. I think that's as good and reliable an objective source as we're going to get on the subject.

But for the record, as much as I like Eberle, any move that would leave Paul ****ing Martin as our #1 would be a terrible, terrible mistake. Eberle couldn't score enough goals to make up for it. Hell, Gretzky probably couldn't score enough goals to make up for it.
