He has done nothing but be a top level scorer in his career. Taylor Hall might have a different skill set then RNH and Eberle but his is of an equal level in my eye, more unique and perhaps more difficult to defend against.
Well depends how you define skill. I agree with BBO, but what I think he means is that Hall is the most physically skilled but sees the ice the worse. Hall has incredible skating ability. At some point in his career he will be the hardest player in the NHL to defend against on a one on one. His goal the other night will be something he will do many times in his career.

Any way, differnt skill set. I don't think Hall is less skilled, but he isn't as good of a passer as ebs, shultz, and nuge. His raw physical skill is the highest of the group though.
