Last night Taylor Hall got himself crushed. It wasn't surprising, given the way he plays the game. The Oilers were a shadow of themselves without Hall, putting the chestnut of him being in any way shape or form inferior to that Boston guy finally to rest, insofar as this commentator goes.
This is partially the subject of today's lecture. That, young super players who enter the league at 18(like Hall), with their teenaged bodies run every risk of getting themselves smashed into pieces before their bodies mature.
If Hall recovers and miraculously avoids more injuries, by the time he's 23 years old I believe the Oilers will be perennial cup contenders. He's that good.
