Taylor Hall's production through the first half of the season has not been close to how he produced the previous two years. In 2013 and 2014 he had 130 points in 120 games. He produced the 6th most points in the entire NHL during that span, but so far this season he has struggled.
He has 25 points in 35 games thus far, but Hall told me that his health is not the reason his numbers have dipped.

It’s about time the Edmonton Oilers took a serious look at how they draft and develop players even if it might be a case of better late than never when it comes to Nail Yakupov.

One of the problems that the Oilers have to address between now and whenever they’re going to be competitive is the state of their defence. It’s been a weak point for ages, and has never recovered from the Steve Tambellini-led dismantling it underwent at the start of the current rebuild.

The Oilers' recent track record of developing players has not been good. Too often they have rushed players to the NHL, or in some cases to the American Hockey League. However, their decision to send Leon Draisaitl back to the Western Hockey League, finally, was correct and hopefully a sign that the organization is going to be more patient with their young players moving forward.
