I see people say this all the time and can't say I get it.

Hall: 68 G 85 A 153 P in 180 GP (0.85 points per game) to date 49 G 46 A 95 P in 126 GP in first two years (0.75 points per game)
RNH: 26 G 60 A 86 P in 114 GP (0.75 points per game)

Average to date: 147 GP, 0.8 points per game

Ignored Yak, because while it's too early to be writing any of these guys off, it's definitely too early to be tossing out judgement on Yak.

Tavares first two seasons: 53 G 68 A 123 P in 161 GP (0.76 points per game)
Kane first two seasons: 46G 96 A 142 P in 162 GP (0.87 points per game)
Stamkos first two seasons: 74 G 67 A 141 P in 161 GP (0.87 points per game)

Average GP: 161 GP, 0.83 points per game

In terms of points, they've been on par or better than Tavares, and not a ton behind Kane/Stamkos.

If you want to say our players have been less healthy, sure...

I question how they play at times, but Hall was 9th in NHL scoring last year, in his third season. 2nd leading scorer in the West.
