So then why does more goals apply to Eberle?

Jamie Benn has had ~15 highlight reel goals in the past season and half. Does he have elite hands? No, he's nowhere in the discussion.

Because he scores a large margin of his goals dekeing defensemen and goalies.

No player does, and Eberle is no exception. He had a max of 5 goals like that.

If you won't even watch youtube videos I posted for you, don't expect me to look up every single goal he scored last season. I'm doing no different than you did.

So by your logic Datsyuk should score way more goals than the 20 or so he puts up a year. He has the better hands right?

So you think he shoots at 20% in the NHL and 25% in the AHL because of his shot?

Duchene is another guy with better hands as well.

Let's see him actually maintain that for more than season. And AHL stats mean absolutely nothing to me, they've never proven to translate to NHL success.

Huh? Datsyuk has cracked 30 goals multiple times.

Ok so 25 or so goals. Don't dance around my point. He has some of the best hands in the league but he doesn't score that much compared to guys like Stamkos or Crosby. Your logic is just awful and now you're making up stuff and insulting people.

He had 19 goals last season, Eberle had 34. Does Eberle have better hands than Datsyuk because he scored more goals than him?

I love watching the WJC's, but I do hate some of the ridiculous questions they bring about along with insane trade proposals around here.

Eberle AINEC.

Drouin might one day deserve to enter this argument, but that isn't today and it probably isn't for a couple more years even if everything goes well.
