The stats don't lie.

Eberle was given the best possible zone starts the team could give him. Basically throwing him out on offensive end faceoffs whenever they could and saving him from own zone faceoffs whenever they could. They got him easy matchups whenever they could and he still had 60GA scored. Without any of it being pk. These are poor numbers.

He's too awful in defensive play for the club to even consider pk as an option.
