Hall is fine. There were plenty of times when he was driving the line with RNH and Eberle riding shot gun last year.
He's going to look rusty for another couple of months, people just need to accept that. This type of shoulder injury takes a long time to recover from, Oiler fans should know this better than most as we've been through this exact same script like three times now, lol (Hemsky, Souray, Horcoff ... same surgery).
Hemsky looked like garbage last year until about February or so then started to look more like himself again. Souray was terrible the first year here, but then was basically an All-Star the full year afterwards removed from his surgery.
It takes time, fellas. When you do not have full confidence in your shoulder, your entire game is going to be a toss up.
One of the few bonuses of this lockout is Hall gets to recover in the AHL under the lime light without having to put too much pressure on himself. Better to work out the kinks in his game now.
