Edmonton Oilers fans are still pretty split on how they feel about Taylor Hall being traded for Adam Larsson, as was evident on Twitter after Round 2 Game 1 against the Ducks last Wednesday.
Who has more goals in Oilers' playoff history Taylor Hall or Adam Larson? Great trade Peter! That's why you're GM and we're fans! #GOILERS

Hall’s new team, the New Jersey Devils, won the NHL Draft Lottery yesterday… making this 3 out of the past 6 seasons that his team has won the first overall draft pick.

Hockey fans were quick to notice the connection, and Hall had a pretty good sense of humour about it.
Officially adding "NHL lottery ball specialist" to my hockey resume.

The Oilers weren’t even in the draft lottery this year, but we’re all a lot happier here in the playoffs!
