I don't think he is, at all. Ryan had problems in Anaheim. Little time on the top powerplay, juggled around in the lines, little left chemistry with Getzlaf/Perry the third(ish) time he was on that line. He simply wasn't in a position where he could utilize his unquestioned skills to his own or the team's help. However, there's no questioning his skills, and those offensive skills are greater than Eberle's. Ryan scoring more right now and at the clip he does in Ottawa really isn't coming as a shock to anyone. Eberle should make the gap closer soon enough, but that's about it, IMO.
