For me, it probably has to be Yak.

I loved watching Hall dominate this year, but you just can't help but pick Yak

Well, Sutton did accomplished exactly what I thought he would. So, I'm satisfied with him.

Picked the Yakker.

My vote goes to Hall. A dominant player this year. Yak is really exciting and shows a ton of personality...I could see him being my fav player in the future, but he still has a lot to learn. He'll get there.

Not surprised with all the Yakupov votes. We're always about the shiny new toy here in Edmonton.

For me, its Hall. Its been a long, long time since we had a PPG player or a top 10 scorer. Watching him become a legitimate star player was the ONLY bright spot in this miserable season.

Yeah, but this shiny new toy is like when i opened an xbox 360 on Christmas morning in 06, 7 years later and I still love it. Yaks personality and attitude is the best he never showed the suck seeping in like hall did towards the end of the season

I think yak has that Hall passion and fire for the game and he has more offensive potential. Those two on a line is havoc for any team.

Yak City for my pick, although my close second was Ryan Smyth.

He has the fire and passion, maybe more pure offensive talent. But he can't match Hall's physical capabilities. The speed+size of Hall is something to behold. Yak is quite quick in his own right, but he isn't on the same level as Hall.

It's gotta be Hall followed closely by Yak.

Sure, Yak scored some timely goals and always made sure to make sure you knew he was happy about it.

Hall on the other hand put this team on his back for the entirety of the season, and was pretty damn consistent in both ends making sure he did his best to try and get us a W. He was easily the heart and soul of this team. Yak was more exciting, but you must respect every Hall did/does.


BEAST.

Hall/YakCity

I can't decide. Both are steely-eye'd missile men.

Won't vote, because I can't vote for both of them.

Hall has the physical capabilities but yak easily has more offensive potential IMO. His playmaking is underrated and the guy has an elite shot. In the end, they will both be pretty equal. Both have the work ethic, passion and determination to be great nhl players.

Hall, AINEC.

(One of the few times I'll use AINEC non-sarcastically. )

Eberle again for me, I know he was a little off but every freaking goal he scores is a highlight real goal it seems.

I liked Hall this year the best. I'm a huge Eberle fan,, but Hall just dominated practically every game and shift he played.
