No Eberle is not in his late thirties and he has not asked for a trade. Edmonton is however in a position where they may have to move out a forward to improve the rest of their team. Teams know that the Oilers want to make a move and therefore they are not going to be forced to over pay.

May I ask what the return for the last twenty-two year old forward with one solid season under his belt was?

That should give you an idea of what Eberle would return in a deal. If Edmonton decides to move one of their young forwards (Eberle) they are most likely going to be trying to get back a top four defenseman that fits into the age group of their current core. This player is not necessarily Cowen, but I don't think they are going to be getting back multiple pieces like most fans would expect. Now if a team demanded Hall, a player Edmonton likely has no interest in moving, then it would take a significant over payment to make them give him up.
