There is a perception that Taylor Hall is a possession monster and he’s among the top players in the league.
This is nonsense.
Hall had a season where he was involved in almost every goal the Oilers scored last season but that was a chimera.
The Oilers just won an overtime game against Washington, a game in which Hall had zero points and 2 shots on goal.
On the same night, the Dallas Stars dropped a 3-1 decision to the Boston Bruins…a game in which Tyler Seguin had NINE shots on goal not including 2 hit goalposts.
On the season, Hall has 123 SOG while Seguin has 192.
This isn’t a trivial number folks.
Going into the All Star break…Seguin has 52 points while Hall has 29.
Seguin has 28 goals and Hall has 11.
Memo to MacT: Sell high.
