I am not sure about Hall, but the Oilers culture of losing will get tiring for those with a competative spirit. Particularly when 'the player' doesn't see a path to winning.

The organizations inability to win a trade and fill the holes must be obvious to some of the players.

Eventually, one of the kids, will demand a trade; I suspect it could be as early as next year, especially if the team gets off to a bad start. Realistically this team "could" be worse next year: the vets are getting older and slower. The D will likely be infused with some younger talent and therefore be more exposed. Dubnyk 'might' take a step backwards, and the team doesn't have a back up option.
