The Edmonton Oilers clearly have some rookie talent, but which one will score more goals in the 2010/2011 campaign?

Wow, 300 results on this poll.
I picked Hall, took him a little longer to get out of the gate, but he's starting to show.

i'm going with hall, at the beginning of the season it would have been eberle but now i see him with most total points, maybe even on the team

OMG – I just realized the date of this original posting. (And the date of most replies.)
Now I understand why most people picked Eberle. I may have considered him 6-8 weeks ago too. It's easy to pick Hall today, which I'm sure most people would do if given the chance to vote again!

I pick Hall with an exclamation point!
When looking at the stats, here's how they currently measure up:
Hall: 9 goals on 66 shots (13.6%)
Eberle: 5 goals on 48 shots (10.4%)
Paajarvi: 2 goals on 47 shots (4.3%)
(Paarjarvi did score a hat-trick in the pre-season though.)
But it's not because of the stats that I predict Hall! I've caught all but 2 or 3 Oilers games, and while each of the above rookies have improved, Hall is showing the most improvement. (And maybe he should, because he's the youngest of the three players.)
He's explosive on the ice, and he's starting to shoot the puck more often, which is evidenced by the number of shots he's taken. I think the coaches have told him to shoot more, so the goals will follow.
Now if you asked who was going to get more points this season, that's a toss-up (IMO) between Hall and Eberle!

I picked Eberle, and so did most people obviously, but 24 games in I think many people would switch to Hall...He is coming on strong!

I believe Eberle will lead in goals (of the three rookies mentioned), but Hall will lead the three in total points (and likely assists).
It's not that I have no love for Paajarvi, but, I don't think he'll do as well as Eberle or Hall this season.

I was at the pre season game where Paajarvi got his Hat Trick, and it was impressive.
But in the the Oil's home opener Eberle showed me that he is in fact a mystical time traveling ninja. Soo... I vote him.
The arena wall in chicago should be credited with a goal.

Eberle is the real deal , he might even be better than both Paajarvi and Hall combined

Would have loved to put this poll on the feature page but it doesn't meet the requirements (too much opinion within the poll question) If you tidy it up and add your opinions to a separate post I'll put it on the home page. Great question though!

I picked Ebz, only because i've seen more of him over the years than the other 2.

I have Paajarvi in 3 of my 5 pools this year, so I'm hoping for him. Picked him up in the last round of all 3.
