Hall is a force of nature. Eberle is cerebral. If we need one play to either tie or win a game, we want Hall on the ice for sure. Eberle alongside him is desirable, but other guys would likely suffice, as well.
Im think at this point, there is little evidence to support that at the NHL level. I think Edmonton would have made the playoffs if that was the case. Edmonton must not think that yet, Horcoff wears the C. Crosby, Toews, landeskog had the C at a younger age.
