Restraint is just not an element of Taylor Hall's game, so there are times when the Edmonton Oilers winger inevitably deviates from the high road.

Sometimes he just has to share his frustration with the officiating crews.

But as Hall, sophomore centre Jordan Eberle and rookie centre Ryan Nugent-Hopkins have discovered, there are dues to be paid when it comes to winning over the referees.

"It's definitely frustrating," said Eberle, who has served just four minutes in 59 games. "As a young player, you don't get as much respect as the older guys on the ice, but it's part of the game. If you don't get a call, you just can't retaliate. I did that once this year and they scored on us.
