For the past couple days, the Internet has been abuzz with the idea of Taylor Hall being on the trade market.  Whether he's actually available for trade seems to be irrelevant, people are convinced he's leaving town, and there's no shortage of trade possibilities being thrown out to the Universe (Matt Henderson wrote about it this morning).  It seems like everyone with a Twitter account is throwing out trade scenarios, and ideas about where Taylor Hall will end up.  Will he even be traded?

I appreciated Dallas Eakins' honesty when discussing his time with the Oilers. "We probably got ahead of ourselves systems wise. We should have focused on the fundamentals more," Eakins said.

He also stated that he should have been more patient. "The thing you forget, and I was guilty of it too, is that you forget the players are 19, or 21 or 23. They are pulling on the jersey and going on the ice and you expect them to play like they are 28 or 29 years old. It just isn't there yet."
