Adam Henrique (2nd rounder)
Ryan Ellis (1st rounder)
Cam Fowler (1st rounder)

I'm not saying Hall couldn't produce without all that support but there is no way in hell he puts up amazing numbers without them.

Gaunce has two D men in the top 3 in scoring on the team and 5 players that have 9 pts in 24 games.
In Tyler Seguin's draft year, the Plymouth Whalers top 5 scorers:

Seguin - 106 points
A.J. Jenks - 63
Robert Czarnik - 49
Tyler Brown - 39
Joe Gaynor - 36

Seguin put up elite numbers, and he had squat to play with.
