Kovy is done. We're not that desperate for players.
What about Vanek?
No excuse to get beat out by the Coyotes. We’re a top team, Barzal, Pulock and Toews are all going to get huge raises this summer. Now is the time you go for it and acquire a guy like Hall. If the Arizona freaking Coyotes get him I am going to be steamed
Maybe Randy Robitaille or Keith Aucoin is available? If not, there is always Brad Boyes!
If he costs no assets and signs for a small salary and his contract is done at the end of the year I would be interested as a Hail Mary. I wouldn't take his contract from LA though.
And despite numerous teams being involved, I feel like Devils fans won't be thrilled with the return.
Good, if true.
What would it take for hall and to take Ladd? First and two prospects?
Jimmy Murphy is a hack. Don’t buy it.
anyway, why is this good. Why in the world
would you not want Hall?
I'd love him as a rental, but I'm not trading anything of significance for a rental. Unless I see a signature on a contract before he is traded to us, he is a rental. No ifs, ands, or buts. Dobson is absolutely untouchable and I'm not dealing Wahlstrom or Sorokin. Unless the Devils are willing to accept a deal from us with not including those 3 then I would be ok with that. It won't be considering multiple teams are involved. So I pass.
As for Hall, I've never been a big fan. I've written novels over the years about it so I won't rehash it. I was all in on Panarin because I liked the fit and felt he was the RIGHT guy to get. Don't feel that way about Hall, never did.
No one wants Ladd. It would probably take that much to get rid of him
If a key piece to the trade is Raanta that makes sense for the Devils
A 30 year old goalie shouldn’t be the center piece of a trade involving their star player. It should be young prospects/roster player. Blackwood is their future in goal anyway
For a rental it’s a good piece
I'm wondering if the extra time is some team negotiating a long term contract.
Why would Hall do that though? His agent is that Ferris guy, Marner's agent. He's going to July 1st, I'm willing to bet having to eat Chipotle every day for a month thus further destroying my colon.
From the main board:
Per Hockey Night Hotstove: Coyotes the front runner. Believed their top 2 prospects are NOT part of the offer. Hanging over Bahl. Believed Coyotes were the first to make a formal offer, and Devils have tried to up it with other teams and struggled. They have not given any teams permission to speak with Hall.
Not letting Hall talk to teams about a contract guarantees a depressed return. Arizona haggling over Bahl tells you all you need to know.
I am souring on Hall. I am not positive on an 8 year deal he would be a great fit here for the entirety of that contract. I would have given the contract to Stone or Panarin as well.
No way I'd want to give Hall a mega deal, that's a big reason why I don't want to acquire him. Any team that gets him is invariably going to try and re-sign him and that scenario scares the crap out of me. I just want to bang for a while, not put a ring on it.
I prefer looking for a quality #3C/#4C that can take pressure off Cizikas. Shouldn't cost an arm and a leg to acquire.
Letting him talk to other teams delays the process, he's going UFA
True. Not letting teams talk to Hall's camp at least puts some hope in the mind of the buying GM that he can re-sign him. When they hear directly that he's going to UFA, it would probably decrease his value.
