Taylor Hall has just four goals in his last 28 contests.
"Disregarding that empty-net goal against Chicago I think it's two in my last 24," Hall said. "I've never really had a stretch like this so far in my career. I've had some games where I played well, but overall I'm not where I want to be as a player. I have to get back on track." The silver lining is that he has been setting up a lot of markers lately. In fact he has 11 points in his last 13 contests despite his lack of goals. At the same time, with 29 points in 40 contests, this has the potential to be the worst season of his career from a points per game perspective. Jan 20 - 9:13 AM

Taylor Hall thinks the Oilers will have a stronger second half.

"I know we're in last place, but I can't see us finishing the season in last place, it just won't happen," Hall said. The Oilers are feeling optimistic right now because they've gone 2-0-2 in their last four contests. That's not bad, but it's hardly cause for celebration or a long enough stretch of success to read too much into. Edmonton also had a four-game winning streak earlier this season, but that was drowned out by 11 and nine-game losing streaks. Perhaps the Oilers will do better going forward, but they are hard to believe in at this time.

It looks as though the Edmonton Oilers are putting Taylor Hall, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins and Jordan Eberle back together again.

The Oilers have understandably experimented with different combinations due to injuries and the hopes of spreading the offensive wealth, but sometimes it's best just to simplify things and just go with what works. Edmonton faces the Calgary Flames on Saturday.

Taylor Hall scored two goals in Edmonton's 6-5 shootout loss to Dallas.

Hall also added an assist on Teddy Purcell's second period goal. The Oilers went up 5-2 in the second frame but they suffered a monumental collapse in the second half of the game. Dallas scored three unanswered goals to send the game to overtime. The goals ended an 11-game goalless streak for Hall. Mark Arcobello also scored a pair of goals for the Oilers.

The Edmonton Oilers are considering trading Taylor Hall, per TSN's Darren Dreger.

Hall is by far the Oilers' best player, but reportedly the knock on him is that he hasn't been willing to adapt. If the rumor is true then the Oilers will have no shortage of suitors for Hall's services. He comes with a very reasonable $6 million annual cap hit through the 2019-20 campaign.

The Edmonton Oilers were shutout 2-0 by the New York Rangers on Sunday night.

The Oilers have now lost four games in a row, and 15 of their last 16 contests. Edmonton managed to get only 16 shots on Rangers' goaltender Henrik Lundqvist. Taylor Hall led all Oilers' shooters with three shots on goal. It's clear that things will get a whole lot worse before they get better in Edmonton. It appears inevitable that changes will be made within the organization.

Craig MacTavish held a near-half hour long press conference Friday afternoon.

MacTavish had a few choice words, "I’m going to get to the bottom of it." "It" being the operative word for what has and is plauging the organization. He went on to remind us that, "Trades into today’s NHL are very difficult to consummate." Which is true enough but the larger point is that he doesn't want to fill one hole while creating another. All in all, the press conference was passionate, but not all that informative. Much like the empty calories the Oilers seem to already produce on a nightly basis.

Taylor Hall picked up a pair of assists in Friday's 4-3 overtime loss to St. Louis.

Hall registered primary assists on goals by Nikita Nikitin and Mark Arcobello. The 23-year-old has five points in seven games since returning from a knee injury that forced him to miss six games. Hall has eight goals and 15 points in 18 games this season. David Perron also scored for the Oilers.

Taylor Hall buried his eighth goal of the season as part of Tuesday's 3-2 defeat at the hands of the Dallas Stars.

The talented winger has been one of the few bright spots for a putrid Edmonton team this year since he has put of 13 points in 16 contests in total. Defensive forward Boyd Gordon also scored for Edmonton in the losing effort.

Taylor Hall admitted that he's probably never been this frustrated before since joining the Oilers.

"We're frustrated, the fans are frustrated, I think everyone is," Hall said. "It's on us, that's about all you can say. It sucks. It sucks for us, it sucks for the fans, for the organization, but we're going to have to make it through. We try and regroup as best we can. It's our fault as players and we're going to have to make up for that." Hall's speaking like a good soldier there, but is it really his fault? Aside from suffering some injuries along the way, he's pretty much been everything the Oilers could have hoped for and they have been completely unable to build a team around him. The Oilers are labeled as a rebuilding team, but for Hall that process is already in its fifth season. Hall also firmly stated that he doesn't want to see coach Dallas Eakins fired.

The Edmonton Oilers have moved Taylor Hall to their second line.

Hall will play alongside Leon Draisaitl and Teddy Purcell. The Oilers are trying to shake things up after dropping two straight games. Hall should be able to produce on the second line, which he probably won't be on for very long anyways, so we're not worried about this demotion.
