Getzlaf is too slow for the big ice. He's good, but we need a speedy team. Getzlaf is a dog out there.
I agree the first part of 2013-14 counts, but have you watched Eberle play this year? The guy has been very inconsistent, and he is not an elite sniper. That is pushing it right now. The guy has only 9 goals up to this point, and the games i have seen him play, he has been invisible on the ice. Maybe it is just me, but he
is not on my roster right now. I know he was amazing in the
World Junior Championship, but a lot of guys have performed well in the WJC. This season does matter. You can't compare Staal to Eberle. Staal had 4 straight years of 30 goals or more, including two 40 goal seasons to give him the nod in 2010. However, Eberle is still under my consideration like i mentioned earlier, but he is not on my team right now.
