Wouldn't do that OP package for Eberle straight up. No where near enough incentive on the Oilers end to pull that deal off.

Little better. Would consider this is it was Anderson + Cowen + Z. Smith for Eberle...

So? Only Gordon and Smyth (sometimes) play with grit and are able to contribute to offense and defense. The others are all severly lacking in either the offensive or defensive side of their game (or both) and that's another thing that is hurting us. We need more guys who can contribute to all areas of the game or at least not be a liability, which unfortunately 4.5/6 of them are. (Smyth is the .5 for his inconsistency)
I would not trade Anderson and Cowen for Eberle from an Ottawa POV. Our defense is already suffering and Cowen is our best shot at becoming a stud shutdown man in a few years. And we'd have nothing to back up Lehner. I don't think we could afford giving it up.
Wow, this is one of the few times on HFBoards that two fan bases are actually hashing out a trade peacefully. Giving up Anderson makes sense with Lehner. Eberle gives them the third piece of the big line.
