Simmonds) but we don't need to eat a lopsided deal to make it happen.
I agree that Eberle is a prime candidate to be shipped out for help somewhere on this roster BUT: i can't help but feel that a lot of these trades aren't as lopsided as many people here want to think they are. It's the classic overvalue your own, undervalue the other teams' players. IMO Eberle isn't as valuable as a lot of the people here want to think he is and consequently, we end up being so ridiculously picky about the player coming back ("player xxx isn't even close to as good as Eberle/Yak" etc) that you'd swear we were trading Crosby or Malkin for them.
