    Taylor Hall is an over rated selfish player. One dimensional ” Himself” and only the one and only. Could it be possible that he never plays for a team that makes the playoffs? The Oiler’s did not make the playoffs because the were tanking, they missed them because they sucked! Bad management! Bad players! and Taylor Hall!

      Here`s how they do it in Edmonton. They have a cap problem so they have to unload some bad contracts so they start bad mouthing their targeted players like; `Jordan Eberle has bad practice habits`. Then they get the media insiders pushing managements agenda and before you know it players like Eberle are being trashed by fans. Next on the list to be trashed is The Nuge because of his contract and you end up with comments like this;

      Jordan Eberle is an over rated selfish player. One dimensional ” Himself” and only the one and only. Could it be possible that he never plays for a team that makes the playoffs?
