When you think of Jordan Eberle, recency bias might point to a bad 2018-2019 season. He only had 37 points which is 22 less than he had with the New York Islanders in his first season with the club.
The fact of the matter is, Jordan Eberle is a skilled top-six forward in the prime of his career and the Isles got him at a discounted price. Lou Lamoriello was able to lock up the right-winger on a five-year $27.5 million deal.
With a $5.5 million cap number, comparatively, you are getting more bang for your buck.
