Kessel can't catch a break. It's Hall, now and future.

This is from what Boston fans said about him. He's a damn good player but Hall has similar offensive ability with captain-level drive.

I guess I'm of the opinion that "drive," "effort," "hustle," and "heart" shouldn't be given precedence over ability, so I always find it funny when people use those terms to knock certain players.

Gotta go for Kessel, he's near PPG, has improved his passing game, has better two-way play (still not elite but he will backcheck now) and is producing in the playoffs too.

Hall probably has more ability overall but until he proves that in the playoffs I just can't take him.

Funny because in his rookie year, Hall said he tries to model his game after Kessel. 2 years later and Hall is a very different player...the only similarity is their speed.

I wonder what HF boards would have been like in the late 80s, early 90s when Sakic led his team to last place finishes 3 times while finishing top 10 in scoring. There would be arguments that Rob Brown or Bernie Nicholls were better players because they played in the playoffs, or Joey Mullen was far superior since he won cups.

I'm pretty sure there are archives from the early stages of the internet you can go back to and find people criticizing Gretzky for not winning. Definitely seen it before, no idea where to find it though.

So true. It happens in every team sport. Somehow people are unable to separate individual accomplishments from team accomplishments. It's kinda funny
