Taylor Hall 224GM 85G 116A 201Pts = PPG 0.89

RNH 160GM 37G 82A 119Pts = PPG 0.74

To say Eberle doesn't deserve 6M a year means RNH doesn't deserve it too Points-wise. I know everyone is all like "We need to be BIGGER" but in no way is Eberle a overrated player.
I used the word might.

His 76 point season he was amazing. All star.

He has slightly improved defensively but taken a big step back offensively each of the last 2 seasons.

Lets be honest here. Eberle looks like a shadow of himself offensively the last 2 years. I never would have thought he was a get his contract and give up kind of player but of the big three signed to those deals he certainly seems to have dropped the most.

RNH is improving slower than I thought but still improving.

Hall is worse this year than last but still looks pretty damn good.

Eberle this year and last year just hasn't looked dangerous most nights and seems to have lost a step.

That's not to say he sucks. He has just not played as well as he has. If he continues to decline I think he "might" not be worth his contract when all is said and done.
