Eberle's hands are possibly top 10 in the NHL, gotta go with him.

The guy who went pretty much PPG at an NHL level (largely due to his hands) or the guy who is not drafted yet?

Hmmmmmmmm....

How is it relevant whether he is drafted or not? Also there were A LOT of other factors which allowed Eberle to be a PPG NHLer, his hands were a small factor all things considered.

Your telling me a guy who's a human highlight reel at the NHL level with top 5 best hands in the league is even comparable to this guy? This thread is a joke and the fact Drouin has 10 votes is nothing but another massive display of ignorance by HF. Watch Eberle's first period tonight and you'll see better hands than Drouin has shown all tournament. In fact watch Eberle's first goal, world juniors, NHL highlights ANYTHING and you'll see that this is not comparable.

Eberle has some nice moves. I could easily pick out 10 players with better hands though.

Right now, it's Eberle obviously. Drouin will have better hands in the future though, IMO.

Drouin could potentially already have better hands.

Ebs a.k.a. Captain Clutch. But honorable mention to Drouin who has a sick set of mitts.

Eberle not close at all. The 15 people who voted for Drouin should probably watch more hockey

I feel like if it was Drouin vs Hal Gill, Gill would win just because he's in the NHL

If you've seen any Barons games this year, you'd know the answer is Eberle. He's been pulling off moves that I've never seen before at the speed he does them. I really like Drouin, but this isn't close right now.

Drouin has much better hands than Eberle, he can do things with the puck that only a couple guys in the NHL can, what does Drouin not playing in the NHL have to do with who has better hands?

No man, its vice-versa, HF logic = potential > proven

Eberle arguably had better hands than Drouin at the same age

Canuck fans are a hoot. Burrows is better than both of them, right?
