This is what a player looks like after the league has made a checking and coverage "correction". In short this is Eberle after the big success when he had nothing but offensive zone starts, and not as much scouting reports and focus on him.

Eberle's a good offensive player and should always be swinging for good pt totals which makes him solid in that regard. But when he's not doing that and not very good in NZ or own zone he's a problem.

He better get better. It would be tough to see him getting paid 6M to do this.

Eberle needs to hit the offseason hard and really improve his game.
Agree with this post completely. His physical limitations will hold him back from really improving significantly though. He should be a solid 60-70 point guy if we can get our **** together.
