Wow do we turn on our own quickly around here.

I said it last season when all the talk about unsustainable was going around, Eberle is not going to be a consistent point per game player but he is a top end scoring talent. He'll have some up seasons where he hit's around 80 points and some lows where he's in the 60's (which is what he's on pace for if this is was a full season). He's still clutch with a knack for scoring important goals. Get him to the playoffs and he'll be worth every penny.

Why does this remind of Gagner so much and all the love he got the first season which quickly fell off as people looked for someone to blame for all the losing. He's now showing that he's a real talent and a worthwhile member of the team.

It likely is true that we have too many small talented guys on this team and we're going to need to move someone to get a better balance of talent and size. We dont need to cut these guys down to say that. Eberle is an amazing talent, so is Gagner and RNH but we're likely going to have to move at least one of them at some point and we shouldnt cloud our judgment by pointing out all the holes in their individual games. These guys are all talented NHL players who will be stars in this league just maybe not here. We dont have to burn the bridge behind them when they leave, we dont need to point out all their failings. Hell I remember when Gretzky was here and before the cup runs people were complaining about his lack of defense/cherry picking and his lack of physical play. If the best player in the history of the game had holes in his game then you have to accept that anyone we have on our team is not going to be perfect.
