Which didn't impact him at all in a recent shootout when he snapped the puck so hard the goalie didn't move on it. The problem with Eberle is clear, not getting into money areas consistently enough. Of course on a shootout nobody is around to slam him into the middle of next week.

Eberle more than anything is a little rattled at the NHL heavy metal thrown at him these days. Something he has to man up to and get over. He will. But I imagine its a shock to the system when hockey players hit like this.

Proverbial welcome to the NHL sometimes arrives later than it should.
