He had a goal and an assist... apparently scored on his first shift, although I wasn't watching the game (I just read the recap on falconsahl.com). It sounds like he looked pretty good, considering the team he's playing on.

Just saw his highlights on TSN and he looked good. The Panel had nothing but good things to say about him and his future with the big club.

Despite his size, he's got tons of talent, not to mention he was our best player during the pre-season.

Lets see how he does down there and see if he's consistent.

Didn't take him long to get a goal. Scored about one minute in. Also had an assist, even +/-, 5 shots.

There is no point in filling out team solely with 6'2" or 6'4" players if they're afraid of contact or possess little skill and tenacity like Eberle.

Listed as 5'11" 187. He'll probably gain 5-10 more pounds hopefully and he'll be 5'11" 195. Joe Sakic v2.0?

His first goal was nice and it was a minute in and his assist could've very well been a goal but it hit the post or went wide, can't remember which

Unfortunately, no. But from the looks of things we can expect a decent second liner, a good offensive contributor, and a terrific attitude from Eberle. That's definitely nothing to sneeze at.

Eberle is 5'11 the way Gagner is 5'11.

5'11 at 187 lbs is not that light..lots of smaller players in the NHL...he's not trying to be a Power Forward...with age he'll pack on another 10-15 pounds...Doug Weight was 5'11 and he hit people for breakfast some times....Eberle isn't undersized at all...5'11 is big enough if you play the game the right way...

eberle is pretty shifty, he almost always comes out of the corners with the puck, granted against junior dmen but he his strong on the puck as he continues to mature physically i think he is gonna be a great player

I realize you don't want to get worked up and be dissapointed, but is it crazy to think he'll ever be more than that. Personally, I'm thinking first liner anywhere from 30-40 goals in his prime.

Yet, both of our opinions are based on absolutely nothing, as seen in here http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?t=748508

He's barely 5'10, 5'11 is a laugh. Either way I'm not too worried considering his skill and how good he is in a crowd.

You could be right and I may yet be wrong (I definitely hope I'm wrong ). My hesitancy is based on what I consider to be the over hyping of his actual abilities. He excelled in junior, but the junior game is different from the NHL and I wonder whether his size and skating will be an issue. What isn't over hyped is his great attitude and team mentality, which I think will play a vital role in any success he has in the NHL. When I say second liner, that's not meant to be a put down or a vote of non-confidence. I think second liners are tough to come by and getting one at 22 overall has to be considered a win at the draft table. Though I do think if the draft where held again today, Eberle would go much higher.

As I mentioned though, you might very well be right. I'm sure we all hope you are.

And I have no doubt in my mind he can be a 30-40 goal player in the NHL. To you doubters... did you even see him play in preseason? Dominant against NHL defensemen! Ya sure, it's only pre-season, he was flippin' 19 years old. They're going to make sure he's dominating in the A, then we they bring him up, they're going to expect him to play the same dominating style in the NHL. If he doesn't, he'll go back into the A to keep up his style of play. That's what it means to not rush a player. Give them confidence in all steps of progression.

Not sure what this means, or if I can extrapolate anything from this:
Just wondering if WJC success actually means anything.

2010:
8G-5A-13 Pts 2nd in Tournament Scoring

2009:
6G-7A-13Pts 3rd in Tournament Scoring

World Junior Best Forward
All-Time Canadian Goal Leader for this tournament (Passing Tavares):

World Junior MVP
2010 - Jordan Eberle
2009 - John Tavares
2008 - Steve Mason
2007 - Carey Price
2006 - Justin Pogge (anyone watching will say it was Malkin)

cawinkidink? I think not. His size and skating are an issue, but he always finds his way in the right spot at the right time and he delivers. Hockey sense > Size IMO

I don't think either is a major issue to be honest.

Eberle is a deceptively fast little guy and his hockey sense trumps whatever he lacks in size. He finds the open areas of the ice, seems to always place himself in a good position and can battle along the boards if need be. I think he is going to be just fine provided he has a solid center alongside him.
