No one's out to get the Oilers or their players. People aren't being favorable to Seguin either. Hell, most of them would put RNH/Eberle above Seguin (which I agree with).
What does it matter if an opinion is objective if it's also completely uninformed? Those main board polls are laughable. How many people voting in them actually view both players more than a couple times a year? It's a popularity contest essentially, with people going by what they see on a stat line or what theyve heard.
Youve outline a perfect example of what Ive just said. On the main board, people would vote Eberle over Hall, but if you look on HFOil, Hall would be voted the better player. Weird isnt it, that the perception of two players will differ between a group of people that watch them both play, and a group of people that do not.
