This may impact his Olympic aspirations. Hall has a slim chance of making the team unless he completely dominates.
I hope Hall as a center works.
I hope it works also but i highly doubt it. His game is "Taylor" made for the wing.
I don't see him having the defensive awareness or the cerebral ability to be a long term solution at center, i just don't see him ever being a 2 way threat.
He has that Ovechkin mentality to keep attacking at all times, i don't think that will work at center and if he does change his game to accomodate the center position, that will likely diminish what makes Hall special which is to consistently attack defenses with his speed. I can't think of too many players leaguewide who play Hall's kamikaze style that were/are successful at center.
