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.
I think that Hall is the kind of player that you have to watch on a night to night basis to understand how brilliant he is. Half of HF probably saw him play one game where they see an unconventional skating stride and see him get hit hard, then they make up their mind on him.
Just a few weeks ago there was a thread on the prospects board where you listed the hyped prospects that you didn't think would pan out. Hall was listed many times, despite the fact that he is a 1st line NHL winger. Amazing.
