Eberles all round game for his age is ****.
With what TC has put down and the reliance and expectation of solid all round play and D and puck support the Eberles of the world don't stand much of a chance.
Eberles brand of hockey just wouldn't be required or wanted.
RNH has a lot of time to get himself untracked and turned around. Having a horrible year as is most of the team.
Eberle was invited to the camp in the summer and his name popped up on that documentary about making the team as a guy who just isn't there yet. It's unlikely he was a legitimate candidate, but there was discussion.. Hockey Canada likes Eberle for sure. Not sure he'll ever make an Olympic squad as that is the best of the best, but it wouldn't be a surprise if he's considered.
I think Eberle actually has a better chance of making a team Canada than RNH.
Assuming Hall stays on track he should be a shoe in.
