Sorry I should have been more precise.

I think you need at least two players operating at the same level on any forward line. On the Oilers' roster I think Hall can be paired with any of RNH, Eberle, Hemsky, or Yakupov. At the AHL level, I believe you are effectively wasting one of the kids' talents by breaking them up.

A case study of this would be Ales Hemsky's career to date.
