I find the idea that 40 Eridani having a planet to be less than shocking.

PlaneMOs keep popping up everywhere, it seems.

On that we agree. There are a multitude of system configurations too. But I think this one is interesting because it’s almost like a prediction. I’ll bet you that it gets named Vulcan too.

I don't bet on things I already know are done deals - the temporary name already is Vulcan. At least, from the discovery team.
