Most Valuable Oiler #15

Who do you think is the next most valuable Oiler going forward?

Consider age, contract, injury history, positional value, leadership, potential, etc... One way of thinking of it would be: in a trade to a neutral team, who would bring the greatest return?

This poll just reminded me our team captain might not even be in our top 15 valueble players.

Whats with this organization and picking bums for captaincy?

Partial agreement, but the role of captain generally shouldn't be given to a youngster who hasn't proven anything in the league on a losing team IMO. Hall wasn't an option at the time, so who do you go with? Gagner? In retrospect, it probably would have been best to leave it vacant, given that Ference may be a healthy scratch for his last season (if our D prospects pan out as they should)

Hall finished 7th in league scoring and was and continues to clearly be the emotional leader of the Oilers team.

Not quite sure how that's not having proven anything.

This team goes nowhere without Taylor Hall. That has been the case since day 1, moreso than any other player on the team or in the organization. Andrew Ference could disappear off the face of the earth and we'd barely notice it on ice.
