Of any Oiler if you bring a kid, girlfriend, wife, whatever, to a game Taylor Halls game is as close to it gets as a guarantee. You tell the budding fan to watch number 4. Just watch him, he'll make things happen, he'll push the play, he'll be evident a lot.

Home or on the road he's that one player we have who always brings it. This used to be a more common element in hockey. Hall is a throwback. In a very good way.

With this degree of professional approach and day to day focus I can't imagine what his peak is.
