And? A fluke goal does not make Ben Eager a great player. He is little more than a fourth liner and his value would be comparable to that of Ponikarovsky, if not less. Those demanding Eller or Thrower are vastly overrating Eager.

You realize he is a third liner on a weak Edmonton team, yes? Good teams would not have Eager on their third line. I do agree he would fit nicely on the fourth line and have no qualms pitching an offer but nothing ridiculous.
