You can see this from looking at Hall vs Eberle. Most of HFOil takes Hall, while most of HF takes Eberle. Hall is underrated because didn't get hot early in the season like Seguin and because he missed games due to injury.
You sure have a lot of excuses. The "Hall is underrated because didn't get hot early in the season" takes the cake. Hall hasn't been able to stay healthy, that's an actual proven fact based on his only 2 seasons played in the NHL. Maybe in the future he can prove people wrong, but until then it's the truth. Having a player of his caliber only play a partial season makes him less valuable than the player who has equal skill that has shown he can stay healthy. Maybe the Oilers training staff is partially to blame for his injuries and conditioning? Hemsky, Whitney and even the Nuge have all missed significant portions of time with the franchise.
