If this were true, Hall wouldn't be getting pushed off the puck at the half boards on every single PP shift he takes.

I like Hall at C with Penner and Hemsky because its forcing him to work on his passing. But I don't want to see him pass in the offensive zone as much as he's trying, shoot the puck Hall!

I was looking back at what we were seeing Hall was capable of at C and it got me thinking if the Oilers still might be planning on having Hall as their First line C in the near future.

He was really starting to show some real promise the short time he played C last season. Could our future 1/2 be Hall/RNH?

Eberle Hall Hemsky
PRV RNH Omark/Pitlick

Personally I think that Hall and RNH will be joined at the hip. We probably have the wing depth to pull this off, however I'd rather a guy like Pitlick step into the 2C spot and let Taylor concentrate on being one of the highest scoring wingers in the game.
