Between the two of them: it's Eberle for me AINEC.
Some size has to come into the top 6 here somehow, because a top 6 consisting of players all under 200lbs is pathetic and will get steamrolled again next year.
I think one of the big 4 fwds is the only one that can fetch that type of player in a trade and none of the 1st overalls should be going anywhere if you ask me.
I guess my problem with Eberle is that everyone is talking about him having a "down year", as if he just isn't burying his chances. Although he has missed some of the shots he was making last year, the bigger problem has to be that his compete level has been abysmal this year. Signing that big contract last summer has made him content with playing half-assed hockey. People really need to stop calling it an "off year", because it's all his own fault for not showing up to play every night; flying the D zone early so he can cheat for offense, and repeatedly passing up great shots to try a toe-drag through multiple defenders.
