We need to stop evaluating on potential and start looking at who is the most valuable right now. We've been evaluating on potential for far too long. Hasn't worked for us in the slightest.
The OP asked "who is the most valuable going forward," not "who was the most valuable last year." As usual, the HF community is really willing to go out on a limb with predictions, as I'm sure a similar poll last year/during the lockout would have found Eberle to be our most valuable.

You're basing your opinion of RNH on a season where his shoulder seriously limited what he was able to do. "Evaluating on potential for far too long" applies to Hemsky age 25-28 where we were still waiting for him to break out. Nuge just turned 20 less than 3 months ago. Are you trying to tell me he has plateaued?
