The navel gazing only taking place when grass is greener. 2 weeks ago Logan Couture was considered better than anybody on this club. 3 weeks ago the Kyle Turris stuff started to resurface.

Both these players are stone cold after hot starts.

Fact of the matter is theres a lot of times people probably think good things about the players on this club and long for them instead of who they might have.

With Hall specifically you have that rare breed of player that has a defined game and brings that to every game. No slacker this kid and consistent effort. Consistent will. Where the hell is Tavares when his team is getting waxed 7-0.

Careful what you wish for. I'll take the player with heart, fight, and undeterred determination every time.
That is what I find most impressive about Hall. There is hardly any variation in his compete level and effort from game to game. The quantifiable results might not always be the same, but his impact on the game is usually evident. Consistency is definitely a rarity in hockey. Hall has had what, maybe 1 , "meh" games this season?
