His impact is massive in terms of the team winning. When Hall plays every other player gets more space just because he's tearing around and one of the D needs to follow him. The difference when he is in an out of the lineup is night and day. Eberle in particular is having a field day walking around defenders because Hall has taken the other one out of the play. With Eberle's hands he's probably going to beat an AHL D one on one 90% of the time.

That being said, Schultz is producing at about the same rate as he was pre Hall, so I'm not sure Hall's return can fully explain what Schultz is doing.

He's coming along nicely. He has 12p in 18 games. Still needs to add a bit more polish to his game but he's playing grittier this season which is great to see. I expect he'll play the season in the A regardless of if an NHL season happens or not.
