This is why I hate Eberle on the point of the PP. When was the last time anyone saw Eberle score from a slapshot? Get his back down low because that's where he scores from. Gagner was actually a decent option on the point last year because he seems to be able to score from a slap shot every now and then in addition to being a good passer as well. Just seems to me that Eakins doesn't use the options he does have properly.
