Give-aways per 60 minutes 4.29, 3rd in the league
Takeaways per 60 minutes 2.91, 10th in the league

Ales Hemsky
Points per 60 minutes 1.73
Give-aways 2.53 per 60 minutes, 82nd in the league
Takeaways per 60 minutes 2.09, 109th in the league

from these stats (of course stupid to use selected stats) Hemsky should get a little over half of what Hall makes though would be way more productive on a line with Hall I would suspect.
Also Hall should be punished much like Yak was because of his very bad give-away stat. Though he is near the top in takeaways the difference in takeaways to Hemsky for example isn't huge but the give-aways are horrendous (Petry is up there as well as Schultz).
i would wonder how many of those takeaways for hall are directly related to a giveaway from hall. as in i wonder how many of those he gets back after he loses it. It also tells me that one way or another being in the top 10 in both categories means he is driving the play every time he is on the ice.
