I think its safe to predict that he'll have a career in the NHL.
Fact: Ben Eager is rated 8th on the depth chart in the Phili organization. And remember, this organization is rated in the mid 20's for prospects. Theirs arguably 200 prospects ahead of Ben, give or take one or two years.

Too much is being made of Ben's first round status. That was 2 years ago. Infact, we can probably go as far as say, "being a recent 1st round pick, really doesn't hold water from here on out". He's got his work cut out for him. Can he do it? You bet!! But he can also not make it too. Think about this. How many NHL teams expect 4 of their top 8 to play, let alone have any impact? Not too many...

Good luck Ben!!!
