Here is a post from joestevens in that other thread that clears up Halls situation from Gregor.
Hmmm... There are no exemptions for players coming back from injury?

I know Eberle the other day said he assumes when Hall is healthy he will be coming down to join him, RNH etc... in OKC.

"Mentally, I don't really look at it like it's going to dwindle anything or hurt my progress," Eberle explained. "I'm going to try and build my game as best I can and play to the best of my ability -- that doesn't change no matter where you're playing. We're going to have some good players down there like Nuge, (Justin) Schultz and, in all likelihood, Hallsy (Taylor Hall) once he gets cleared."
