I haven't seen the sabremetrics yet but I did notice Hall was scoring at a good clip. "On pace" are some famous last words though. By the way, what statistic would you suggest I look at when evaluating how good a player is and why?

Anyways, I'm just trusting what I see with my eyes. I see speed, desire, and a decent shot...and not much else. Perhaps someone can point me to a game or play where he showed elite hands, vision, playmaking, play-creating, creativity, etc.

Ok, that's cool. Given the hype around the time he was drafted, I thought he was potentially just short of a generational talent...but we all tend to get overexcited at draft time.

Why? What do you see that I don't? Break it down for me. I like watching the Oilers, Eberle in particular. But, for example, other than speed, I don't see what sets Hall apart from a guy like Evander Kane.
