    Taylor Hall

    The scouting for the '10 draft had Taylor Hall as more NHL ready, an Ovechkin-like exciting goal scoring winger whose style could lead to an injury-plagued career. Tyler Seguin was touted as having more long-term potential as an all-around franchise center. Wow, does it seem that scouting was bang on.

    Taylor Hall is done for around 6 months with major shoulder surgery. This is the second time in two seasons he's been shut down for the year. This one is more concerning, as shoulder surgery can sometimes have long-term impacts. I hope for his sake it's a complete recovery, but... ankle, shoulder and concussion in two seasons. The face cut in warm up was just bad luck.

    Re: Taylor Hall

    Scouting aside, look at the different expectations of the pair- the Oilers needed someone *RIGHT NOW* and the Bruins really did the slow nurture with Seguin.  Not only did Seguin get the Stanley Cup, he was treated by the organization as a long-term asset worth protecting.
    I think Seguin got the much better part of the bargain going second, but to the Bruins!

    Sounds pretty similar to the Greg Oden and Kevin Durant situation.  Oden picked first overall and has injury after injury.  Durant picked second overall and is tearing up the league.  Funny how things work out.

    Despite the similar stats the two have this year, it seems like Seguin is still a better producer than Hall, even if he were to be healthy. One of the overlooked factors is that the Bruins roll four lines, with Seguin playing about 13 mins a game with other talented players.

    Hall is a first liner for the Oilers, where he gets more ice time, PP time, and plays on the top line every game.

    If the Bruins were in the Oilers situation, Seguin would probably have many more points.

    They definitely got lucky that the Oilers drafted Hall. Both should have great careers, and both should be lucky they didn't end up in Toronto.

    Re: Taylor Hall

    Scouting reports were pretty bang on, but the fact that Tyler was nurtured and Taylor played was only because of the situations they came into. Taylor Hall benefited from learnign on the job and them living with his mistakes. Tyler Seguin benefited from his Stanley Cup experience, but sont forget, that wasnt the plan. If Bergie doesnt go sown in the Tampa series he might not have gotten in.
    I wouldnt tag Hall as injury prone yet, the ankle happened in a fight he shouldnt have been a part of, but clearly, these two are showing they will both be good fro a long time.

    I think the poster may have meant during their rookie season?

    That said, Hall and his shoulder must be of serious concern to Oilers mgmt. Seguin appears more durable, if only because he is less physical. They play very different styles.

    Meh, guess it's not much of a difference. Seguin has gotten more Ice time with all the injuries, and without Horton being in there. Plus his improvement.

    Re: Taylor Hall

    Hall will be back kids got charecter I've seen it the last two years having NHL Center Ice. Two versitle players playing for organizations one on the right track, one going the way of the draft becuase they are a small market team. Playing for two very different coaches as well.

    Would Seguin have more points this season if he were playing in Edmonton ?

    "Sounds pretty similar to the Greg Oden and Kevin Durant situation.  Oden picked first overall and has injury after injury."

    Stunner, That has more to with the "Portland Sam Bowie Curse".
