Interesting stat, Eberle had a 25% shooting in his time with the Falcons. I'm sure that he could keep that up for a full year. Also he only had 24 shots in 11 games. There still seems like there's stuff that he can work on at the AHL level next year although a really good offseason of training could go a long ways into speeding up his time line to be an Oiler.

BTW-Wiseman doesn't appear to be much of a slouch himself.
The question is how did Minard and Linglet do at the AHL level at age 19?

Obviously the NHL is a better league but comparing players that have many use of pro experience with a 19 year old kid is not a fair comparision either.

Read the post that I quoted, someone was saying that Minard sucks, I said that he is great at the AHL level, if you read further along in the thread you will have seen where I made mention of the younger you are and putting up points the better of a chance for you to become an NHLer. At no point in time did I compare Eberle to those players.
