You might want to stop posting now. Your lack of knowledge of anything non-Habs is incredible.
Fact, Ben Eager was a first round draft pick.
Fact, Ben Eager has a Stanley Cup ring, and was an important member of that team.
Fact, the year after he won a cup, he went to the Western Conference finals, and again, was a very important member of the team.
Eager has played solid hockey all year this year, and has taken few dumb penalties, which used to be the biggest criticism of his game.

Doesn't sound like the Blackhawks or Sharks thought he was a borderline NHL'er. And he hasn't played like one on the Oilers either. The Oilers do need more forward depth, but not to take Eager's spot. And before you start throwing cheap shots, you should probably realize that the Oilers are 2 points out of a playoff spot right now. Yet another dumb statement.
