Taylor Hall had a remarkable rookie season.  Unfortunately for everyone involved, it was wasted on a last-place team.  From the beginning of the season, Hall showed a willingness to go to the tough areas of the ice at high speeds and an eagerness to shoot the puck early and often.  He didn't play the toughest competition, though with Rawhide line changes and the Alberta Waltz in the back who can tell, but he did drive the play.  His underlying metrics were solid and as you'll see below, he improved the players on the ice with him.

  • Hall's numbers were better than the Oilers' team numbers in each season segment except the final one, when Hall was out with an ankle injury.

  • That is a tremendous red line.  Imagine what he could do with some real defensemen.

  • The biggest surprise to me in this list is Jordan Eberle and his without Hall numbers.
  • The second biggest is Shawn Horcoff and his without Hall numbers, but Hall was also barely under water without Horcoff - the only instance of Hall being under water without any regular teammate.
  • Dustin Penner and Taylor Hall were absolutely lights out in their brief time together.  Their .592 chance % meaures up to Henrik Sedin and Daniel Sedin vs. Edmonton in 2011 - .593
  • Taylor Hall had a ton of success with Tom Gilbert and strangely, Jim Vandermeer.
