We are still far too early in the whole Taylor-Tyler thing to say with any certainty how it's going to turn out. Who will be the better player, Taylor Hall or Tyler Seguin?
In the months before Hall and Seguin were selected 1-2, respectively, in the 2010 NHL draft, most knowledgeable talent evaluators looked at the teenagers and concluded two things:
• These were two can't-miss kids, destined for stardom.
• Hall might be the better player in the early days of their NHL careers, but in the long run Seguin would be the better player.
Early in Year 2 for the two former OHL rivals, that sure seems to be where we're headed.
In the second pro matchup between the two players, Hall was good, with one nice assist and plenty of dangerous shifts on the Edmonton's highly skilled Prodigy Line of the 19-year-old Hall, 18-year-old Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and 21-year-old Jordan Eberle.
Tyler Seguin, Taylor Hall forever connected
