Boyle is now ranked 195 and Eberle 148 for the entire season, yet according to Yahoo they are simply too valuable to drop and get higher ranked players so I can try to make a playoff push in the final week. Man, that combined zero points and -2 rating in their last games sure came in handy.
I'm an Oilers fan and I love Eberle, but I'd really love to drop him for Clarkson and at least get some PIMs. Seems like they update the can't cut list for a while at the beginning of the season, then they just forget about it.
I love Eberle too, and completely understand his potential, but enough time has passed on this season to make it obvious that his poor play (at least for this year) is more than just a slump. It's unfair that we can't drop him to try and battle for a playoff spot. If someone else wants to take a flier on him, more power to them.
