2010 NHL Draft 1st Pick: Edmonton Oilers Select Taylor Hall, Windsor Spitfires Center

After spending the last three months debating whether to take Seguin or Hall, the Edmonton Oilers have made their decision and chose Windsor Spitfires center Taylor Hall.

Hall is the flashier of the two players in the Taylor/Tyler debate and should create some excitement for an Edmonton team that seems like it needs it.

Here is what we said when we profiled him back in May:

If Tyler Seguin is the type of player that makes the smart hockey play every single time, Taylor Hall is the type of player that has the skill to wow you every time he touches the puck. The WIndsor Spitfires center is regarded as "1B" in the 2010 NHL Draft and has a legitimate case for being the first overall pick.

Time will only tell whether the Oilers made the right decision in this situation but Hall should be able to sell some tickets in the process.
