I don't get it. Even though he's played fewer games due to injury, Hall has SLAYED JT's PPG, Corsi, and chances for v. against since coming into the league. Well, that is, if you compare JT's first year vs. Hall's. Second vs. second, etc.

I don't "get" why it's such a given that JT's better, when Hall has performed better and on a weaker team in each of those seasons too. Boggles my mind, and it's not just Oiler haters. It's Oilers fans too. WTF??
Didn't Hall and JT put up near identical PPG rates in their first two years? How did Hall "slay" JT in PPG?

When I watch both of them play JT just seems like the better player... Better hands, better shot, better vision, better pass, higher IQ. Hall is a better skater and zone entry player that's about it. The poll results are like that because it's true, JT is a better player. That's no slight to Hall though who is a sublime player himself.
