So far we've got the games played down pat to an eerie level - Hall had 65 and 61 games, while Lindros had 61 and 65. Lindros scored considerably more tho.
You know how you get unbelievably annoyed (which is A LOT) when somebody spews nonsense about Jackets players/prospects. Well, such is the case here with you about Hall.
Lindros suffered from concussions. The only non-fluke injury that Hall has had in his entire career is a shoulder injury that he has been playing through since his junior days so before rambling on about how Hall is the next Lindros, maybe check into your facts next time.
I do agree that Hall needs to alter his style a bit, i'm sure that he will as he gains maturity.
