Preferably we keep both, because I think they're both fantastic young players. But if I had to, Eberle would go before Yak.

Tambo has proven that he is nothing but an average GM, when it comes to building a winner. I will continue to support this team, but would happily give up Ebs for a #1/2 Dman or big centre moving forward.

Ederle to the Blues for Stewart. Or
Eberle+ to Yotes for Yandle

You all know this would work! ��
People complain that our top 6 is too small but yet they want to keep Eberle and Yak. We can't have both of them in the top 6 as we need more size. If you want to improve the defense then you have to give to get.

If I am trading Eberle it is for a dman that is not one dimensional. I would go after a player like McDonnagh.
