Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Terry Jones of the Edmonton Sun,
A controversy is likely to soon begin as to whether he’ll also deserve to be the first winner in Oilers history of the Calder Trophy as the NHL’s top rookie.
With 12 goals and 11 assists going into the team’s 41st game of the season, Hall projects to roughly a 25-goal, 25-assist, 50-point campaign.
That would compare favourably with Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos and his 23-23-46 season two years ago, or John Tavares and his 24-30-54 point season for the New York Islanders last year.
Hall’s projected totals also stack up nicely against the 29-22-51 Ilya Kovalchuk posted in his rookie year for the Atlanta Thrashers.
