Days Until The First Oilers Game: 4 – Taylor Hall
Today’s Player: Taylor Hall. Remember the time our 8th defenseman stepped on his face in warmups?
There isn’t a stronger metaphor for how the rebuild had gone than one of our franchise players getting a blade to his face by Corey fucking Potter.
Luckily Pizza Trav was there to comfort Hallsy took a Tyrion Lannister cut across the face.
Career Oilers Stats:
Career 0.88 points per game and Dallas Eakins coached him for a year and a half OH MY GOD WHAT A BUST TRADE HIM.
Does anyone actually miss Taylor Hall??? I know I sure don't. Trade bait at the draft for a stud d man or top tender.

Oof, maybe the #Oilers should use the buyout window to get rid of that bust, Taylor Hall.

I'll say it right now: I would trade Taylor Hall for Seth Jones and wouldn't even flinch.

When will oiler fans admit that Taylor Hall is a dud #bust

When we first realized he was a bust RT @NHLhistorygirl: 12 yr old Taylor Hall was in attendance at the 2003 Heritage Classic with his dad.

On Habs-Oilers pregame, Damien Cox asks if the Oilers should trade a forward for a goalie. Suggests Taylor Hall for Martin Jones. #imissTSN

Why We Like Him:
If he played for 29 other teams in the NHL he might be considered the best left winger in hockey. Unfortunately he was drafted by a talent sucking vacuum of an organization. He scored a hatty eight minutes into a game against Vancouver. And probably most impressively, he had 80 points in 75 games playing under Dallas Eakins. Eakins thanked him by throwing a towel at his face.
Never has a player been so individually dominant for an organization and been treated like swass like Taylor Hall. He can’t even make a joke in this city without people launching an all out blitz at his life:
@hallsy04 Chiarelli should take away your phone. That's the most embarrassing tweet ever.

Fuck this fan base.
Why We Don’t Like Him:
Few things in life are as painful as watching Taylor Hall attempt a toe drag.
Where Is He Now:
The Ranch On the boys, about to have the best season of his career. Book it.
