I absolutely think Hall is underrated on these boards. He gets talked about like a "bad" 1st overall pick which I don't believe for a second. He is one of the most explosive young players in the NHL and I believe he will be a perennial 40 goal threat very soon (on pace for 36 last year).

I like Eberle and Nugent-Hopkins but I feel like they are being over-valued and Hall under-valued. When Hall was injured last year, Eberle and Nugent-Hopkins and the rest of the Oilers offence looked completely dead. Without Hall's speed and puck retrieval skills, I don't think Eberle and Nugent-Hopkins would look nearly as impressive.

So bottom line: Hall is the one that drives the Oilers offence and creates the most chances.
