I used to think that Yak was far and away the better player because he actually had some level of grit, and he'd be more akin to a player like Hall and Messier, than Eberle who is in the same grouping as RNH and Gretzky (all skill no grit -- if he's not scoring he's useless).
After the game against Phoenix, I'm really not sure, because he was super-duper soft. Flying right past his man on the fore check while merely waving his stick at the guy, often while the defenseman just stood still and watched him pass. It was ugly. Now I worry this team chock full of softies might be rubbing off on him.
