Come playoff time when it's harder to gain the zone we have a guy who's a threat to take the puck right to the net who also has the speed, strength and intensity to retrieve the puck on the dump-in, and the skill to be dangerous with it when he gets it. He's like a combo of Hemsky and Georges Laraque from back in the days when the Oilers played against the Dallas Stars ever year.

Hall will gain lots of fans when the real show begins.
I share your view as well. Hall is the kind of offensive player that can be a catalyst for the playoff with his speed, relentless and determination.

Sometimes, the difference in a playoff game is your team ability to break through the tight checking a couple more times than your opponent.
