Value inflation at its finest.
Schrodinger's prospect?

Or you can actually watch the kid play and try to make an informed decision about his value. Eronen is a pretty solid prospect who played very well last year in the Finnish Elite league. He isn't a top pairing guy by any means but he isn't some pylon either.

There is a reason he is playing with Karlsson. If there were better dmen on the team they would be paired w/ EK.

Ottawa fans for the most part seem to feel that they should get Teemu Eronen -- a player they seem very interested in -- for a bag of practice pucks, just because he was a late-round pick.

Sorry, folks, not happening. The fact that you're even asking about him indicates that his value is higher than you wish to consider... and his performance in the SM-Liiga over the last couple of seasons does not decrease his value at all.

I think the main point is that most of us DON'T want to get Teemu Eronen, actually.

2 or 3 Sens fans < the rest of us.
