Frankly, I'd do it too. Maybe we could even get a depth forward out of the Flyers too, but I'd do it straight up without a problem. I've always thought that Eberle's point totals don't tell the whole story and make us overvalue him. One dimensional is right, the guy can't do **** when playing against the LA's and St louis' of the world. The guy that has been considered "one of our best players" for so long is also one of our least competitive, and IMO we've already seen his best hockey (2 yrs ago).
