this is a reason why Hall is overrated right now. when you have to pull out the arguments about his ppg average or his prorated stats.
his game and point totals are what they are. Doesn't matter what he might have achieved if he didn't get hurt and was able to play. you have to go with the facts.

This season will be a bit of a litmus test. I'd like to see Hall play at least 45 games, be near a ppg, and show some of that "Messier style" for the entire season. Then I'll agree he is coming into his own and deserves more notice around the league. But for now, his lack of love on the rest of the board is justified.
