I still think if nuge develops into the 80-90 point defensively responsible player he has the potential to be, that Eberle's defensive flaws won't be an issue and he will be capable of having 30 goal average years and 40 goal great years.
Actually most people did know the cap was going to drop. Which is why it made no sense for management to sign both these guys right before the lockout when they could have had them for probably 5.5 each after the lockout.

1.5 mill total saved on Hall, Eberle and RNH's contract could mean the difference between a Ben Eager and a Brandon Prust in your bottom 6. That's just simple cap management. These guys do not have to simplest clue on how to build a winning hockey team.
