Yeah, I said earlier its always a surpise how hard NHL players can belt you when you get into the wrong situation. Eberles game is susceptible to that as well so I'm sure it had an impact. There was some hits on Paajarvi as well towards the end of his rookie year that I think impacted how he played the game.

But yeah, you gotta get over that stuff if you want to be a consistent factor. I think Eberle is possessed of too much drive not to.
