Hall's grit is just going to see him on IR year after year. You can sign gritty players or develop them through your system.

The Oilers just signed that gritty guy and since they drafted him; they have developed Hall through their system. You are correct

You are aware that they do not play the same position?
Hall is a LW/C and Yakupov is a RW.

Zibanejad?

The average Senators fan expects Zibby Stardust to top out as a great two way player who puts up 50 points.

Don't know if that is similar to the messiah.

2nd/3rd line centre/winger with size/reach is the projection.

Oilers fans certainly worship at a strange altar.
