The knocks on Hall are his shot accuracy is poor and his breakaway moves are weak. I'd say there is no chance we are trading him, I'd put his value just below that of Nuge and I'd say he is the best player on the team at present. He plays a very north south game and is amazing at getting the puck up the ice from the defensive end to the offensive end of the ice. The second his skate touches the ice it's like the rink has been jacked up in our favour and the puck starts going the other way. More than any other player he is the straw stirring the drink and quite often is the basis for the start of any strong offensive pressure we generate.

For those who don't know Nuge, Eberle, and Hall went from the sheltered minutes many young players get- trying to get them easier match-ups to going head to head against the best the other team has to offer. It's a huge step in any young players maturation process and their offensive numbers will inevitably suffer a bit because of it.
