Hall wasn't complaining about people targetting RNH, Eberle, and Schultz with clean hits on the forecheck. He actually wasn't complaining at all, a reporter asked him a question and he gave an honest answer.

Here's the quote (largely in reference to chippy play from the Aeros):

“Against Houston, remember we were going against two NHL defencemen on that team, too. It was definitely like playing them in the NHL.

“But I do think there is more liberties being taken against us, hacking and slashing and that sort of stuff. To me, it just amps me up.

“But Nuge takes that high stick and guys are playing us a lot tougher.”
