And if you say his 76 pt year was an aberration, what do you say about Edler's two big years running the PP with the Sedins and (previously) Erhoff? How will he repeat those numbers in Edmonton, just as you question how Eberle will score on our 2nd line?
Two big years?

The guy has scored at the 40ish point level for 5 straight years.

In those 5 years he was a cheap.

Eberle already makes Sedin money and IMO, won't be able to keep that up on a winning team.

I like him, but he's paid too much.

Easier to find an Eberle than a 40 point, 25+ minute dman.

The contracts also make Edler more valuable.

Eberle's pace was also closer to 55 points. His 5 points in Edmonton's last two mean nothing games inflates that production.
