When Eberle is on the ice with Hall, the Oilers outshoot and have outscored the opposition. That's pretty remarkable when you consider they spent time playing in front of Khabibulin (who hasn't been NHL calibre in years) and a bottom-3 defense in the league.

When Eberle is away from Hall, the Oilers score less often, allow goals more often, and control significantly less of the play.

There's some caveats to that; it doesn't break down by quality of competition. That's why Horcoff looks awful in Eberle's WOWY - because when Eberle is with Horcoff, they're playing the tough minutes against Sedins/Toews/etc, and when Eberle is away from Horcoff, he's still taking tough minutes and Eberle is being sheltered.

Eberle might very well have scored at the "same ppg" when not playing with Hall, but that's because he was lucky with percentages last year. This year, he hasn't been so lucky.

I mean, last season, he shot 18.9% and this year he's at 8.1%. He isn't nearly as good as he looked last year, and he isn't nearly as bad as his totals suggest this year. Point totals are noise that hide which players are actually following a process that will lead to results.

If i want a goal, i'm putting Skinner out there. But imho Eberle's better overall. Slightly, though. And that may change as Skinner matures.

Have a look at the overtime goal. Who do you think was supposed to be covering Chris Tanev on this shift? Where was he? Did the Oilers actually TOUCH the puck before Eberle bolted and hid in the neutral zone? How many puck battles do you think Petry is going to win against Henrik Sedin/Keith Ballard, when the next closest player is Daniel Sedin?

The Oilers have better options in a shootout than the Canucks; all Eberle had to do was cover his man for 20 seconds and maybe the Oilers are 1 point closer to a playoff spot right now.
