Taylor Hall NHL

Updated on June 29, 2011

Who is Taylor Hall

The overall favorite to be the number one pick for two years now is Windsor Spitfires forward Taylor Hall, who hasn’t done anything to hurt his chances to go number one this season. Taylor Hall was the single draft eligible hockey player to make Team Canada’s World Junior Championship roster and averaged two points a game.

Why would teams pick up Taylor Hall, he has elite speed. His first couples of steps are world class and combined with his tenacity; make Hall a formidable opponent for defensemen. Taylor is incredible at closing the gap on the fore check and confirmed by his stats, is an lead scorer. Even though seen as more of a scorer then play maker, Hall has revealed an ever increasing capability to distribute the puck. Taylor Hall’s only knock could be that he requires to be more dependable on the defensive side of his game.

Taylor Hall Stats

Taylor Hall has a plethora of offensive tools. He has an exciting first stride and is a fluid skater. Taylor Hall’s stats of 36 points he amassed in 20 playoff games last season, has revealed that his game does not dwindle even during high-pressure situations. The fact that hall can play both center and the wing only augments his value and Hall could stand to add 10 to 20 lbs to prepare himself for the rigors of the bigger, stronger NHL. Taylor Hall will step right into the NHL at the start of the 2010-11 season, and should contribute right away.

Picking Hockey Shafts

One can imagine that Taylor Hall picks his Sticks is by considering all the advantages and disadvantages to using short hockey sticks, long hockey sticks, stiff hockey shafts and different hockey stick curves. Most of these decisions should be made while taking into account your skating style and the position you are playing. Many defensemen favor to use longer and heavier sticks as these hockey shafts are more suited to poke checking and the rough play in front of the goalie. Forwards, alternatively, like to use shorter, lighter sticks since they are appropriate for maneuverability and enable you to release your snapshots quickly.

      Hey Gus,

      I have "blown a tire" a few times myself. Once so bad I had a hairline fracture in my elbow. I feel you pain. I am sure Taylor will have a good rookie season but we'll just have to wait an see.

      Hi Shawn - I surely do hope that Taylor Hall does well and that he is a lot better at sharply cutting a turn on the ice than was I (way back when). We used to go a good game at school lunchtime. We'd be on the ice with a sandwich in one hand and our stick in the other hand. One noontime I did a fast left turn chasing after the puck. Hadn't sharpened my skates properly. They slipped out from under me and I slid across the ice at some speed, winding up, feet first, in the big snowbank beside the lake, right up to my ears. My buddies refused to help any at all, standing there laughing like crazy as I struggled to get loose. So, Taylor should understand that there are no real friends on hockey teams and that ice and snow never do warm up either.

      Gus :-)))
