All the people that think/thought of him as the Oilers best player obviously are ignorant of the way he constantly seems to disappear from games. He's an important player for the Oilers, but definitely not an untouchable IMO.

Looking back at the TSN top 50 players list from the beginning of the season it sure seems odd to think that so many people agreed with Eberle at #25, yet thought Hall shouldn't be in the top 50.
I think that was mostly skewed by non-Oiler fans. Most Oiler fans said Hall was better than Eberle, yet nobody believed us.
