Jordan Eberle was once the darling of Edmonton Oilers fans, but the last few years have seen a shift in sentiment. The very real strengths in his game have taken a back seat in many discussions. Instead, his flaws have taken center stage.
In this week’s edition of What Would You Do Wednesday, we want to get your view on the player. If you were the general manager, would Eberle be in your long-term plans, or would you be plotting a replacement?

The Edmonton Oilers have a few former Condors on the 23-man roster this season, and some of them are making a difference. Names like Anton Slepyshev and Tyler Pitlick are helping the big club in support roles, and perhaps these men will hang around and become part of the success in Edmonton. Both players have surprised with their NHL offense, and that has me wondering if we may have missed some offensive indicators in Bakersfield. Photo by Mark Williams, all rights reserved.

The Edmonton Oilers have a depth problem. However, it is finally not a lack of depth.
Todd McLellan currently has two veteran forwards with a combined 920 NHL games of experience sitting in the pressbox. Mark Letestu has played well. He leads the Oilers with two shorthanded goals and is tied for ninth in team scoring with six points. Benoit Pouliot just played his 500th career game, and despite going pointless in 11 games, he is still tied for seventh on the Oilers with three goals.
But both have sat out for two games and after Monday's 5-0 victory over Chicago it might reach three games of eating popcorn in the pressbox.
