By this knowledge, if Jordan Eberle is worth exactly $6M, and his contract is for the same amount, then he has no value. Not positive, nor negative, because he's being paid exactly what he's worth.

That's not how the NHL works.

Again. You don't know what you're talking about.
Jordan Eberle is an elite player with a special skill set. You can't just acquire guys like that at will. Cammalleri is a one-dimensional player on a steep decline who can't stay healthy and has scored about 20 goals and 45 points a season over the last three seasons. That isn't a rare asset. Nobody is going to give anything of substance to acquire someone like that at a $6 million price tag, because any team can acquire a similar player for cheaper in the free agent market. See: Jiri Hudler, PA Parenteau etc...
