Trading one of them now is an idiotic idea, unless it is for a equally talented and just as high potential player. i.e. OEL, Petro, and such forth.
Each of these players have the potential to be a top ten scorer in the league, Eberle was close last year. So you want a defense man that is in the same boat in terms of D man ranking
This is the problem i see, you are comparing eberle a very good, 1st line winger with defencemen who have established themselves as trued #1D, young players who look like they will win a norris in their career.
Anything is possible, but i don't ever see Eberle winning a Art Ross/Rocket.
IMO Eberle being a #1W is equal to a #2D (same age, whereas a franchise winger/1C like RNH/Hall might get you in the conversation about a #1D), you need to aim a little lower in the Larsson/Bogosian/McDonagh/Kulikov range. These players fill our needs much better than one of our redundant, small&skilled forwards (ESPECIALLY on RW).
It's funny last summer some people were throwing around OEL as a possibility, but most objected "not good enough," well now, he's flat-out untouchable.

Chill. 2013 is not our year.

Look at yourselves. As fans.
We need some D. Re-habby-boozin is just fine for his last year in Edmonton in my books. Stick with Dooby. Kids will only get better.
Get off the haterade. HF Oil is a joke. Seriously.
2013 didn't need to be our year to win the cup, but we should have made the playoffs, we are now in a group with ATL, CBJ, NYI as the only 4 teams since 2000 to pick 1st overall and miss the playoffs in the next 3 seasons.
That's some great company.
