Apparently Taylor Hall is a Braves fan, because he's very much fond of doing a tomahawk chop when he has to. But not a typical one-handed one. Oh, no no no. Hall does nothing halfway. He uses two hands.
And a hockey stick (the chop is about 11 seconds in).
Look, I understand that Hall is probably upset about the fact that the Oilers' playoff chances are somewhere...

The Oilers are NOT the worst team in the NHL. Well, not with respect to the amount of talent they possess. The problem in Edmonton is not a lack of talent.
So what is the problem? Why does a team that perhaps possesses a Top 10 in the NHL talent-level continue to play like a last-place team?
Blame whoever you want. I blame Taylor Hall.
You heard me. It's all Taylor...
Edmonton Oilers’ Taylor Hall is not known to be a dirty player, he’s only had one major penalty in his career prior to this. But his hit on Thursday night on Minnesota Wild’s Cal Clutterbuck was extremely dirty. With 17:27 left in the third period, and the Oilers losing 3-1, Hall threw his knee out and used his hip to drive through Clutterbuck, and Clutterbuck was immediately...

Yesterday we showed you the scary video of Edmonton's Taylor Hall taking a skate to the face from a teammate in pregame warmups after Hall slipped on a puck. Today we're bringing you the aftermath of that incident and pictorial evidence that having your face sliced open by a hockey skate never ends pretty.
Taylor Hall, in just his second NHL season knows a thing or two about being a professional athlete. The first, is that it's very important to wear a helmet during pregame warm-ups. The second, that chicks dig scars. Take a look at the picture Hall's Oilers posted on Twitter after taking a skate to the head earlier this week. He received a black eye and 30 stitches.
A routine pre-game warm-up skate turned pretty scary for Edmonton Oilers young gun Taylor Hall. Hall, who must have been working on a triple lutz, fell and teammate Corey Potter skating behind him tried to get out of the way. He obviously couldn't. The 20-year old first overall pick of the 2010 NHL Draft was ruled out for the game and was taken to a local hospital for stitches...
