    30 games isn’t going to make Taylor Hall worthless. I guess in a few days we will know the answer

    If Boston sees themselves signing him longterm after it's a different story, I'm sure with some rehab and time to fix his game he can bounce back to 60+ points if he stays healthy. If it's a one-and-done rental, he's a gamble unless you're sure it's Buffalo dragging him down and not the injuries. As much as a bad system will hurt your production, it's not responsible for you being visibly slower than the rest of your career.

    The return on Hall will be really interesting, but I mean at this rate cut your losses Buffalo and move on. I'm not going to say I'm happy Hall is playing this poorly, I want both him and Buffalo to live up to their potential. With that said, him signing that contract last season with the clear intention of cashing out in summer 2021 definitely rubbed me the wrong way.

    hes a pouter and miserly grump.

    He brings down the morale and effectiveness of those around him. He didn't gel with McDavid and betted against the teams PP scoring a goal in practice, while he was a member of that PP. Hall is about as close to worthless as you can get. His stats this year and the last 3 years prove this. Hes been declining for 3 years now and its only going to get worse.

    Was listening to the hockey central podcast and Anthony Stewart said that he heard from someone that the Minnesota wild were a darkhorse for Taylor Hall. The others chimed in that they've heard that others think that Bill Guerin wants to do something for the team and possibly a big splash which Taylor hall would be. Now I highly doubt there going after hall but at this point anything is possible.

    If my math is correct and it probably is not ..

    Buffalo can retain 50% to lower his aav to 4m

    A second party could retain 50% of that to make him 2m

    Hall has already recieved 67% of his pay so he's only due 33% more.

    The acquiring team only needs 660k in accumulated cap space today.

    If Hall lands up with the Habs, i will need schizoid medication. I will be torn between hating his lazy butt and elated on the potential.

    As long as it's for leftovers and not a first.

    Then there is the threat of a long term contract that should NEVER happen.

    Sorry, Hall is a proven cancer on multiple teams. His return value at this time is a small bag of pucks. Literally.

    He played about 45 games with McDavid, so can't really say he didn't gel. He had 65 pts that year and McDavid missed 30+ games.

    I think the Oilers get him back on Monday, likely for a 100th round pick.

    Truly asking because I don't know. Have there been documented/rumored incidents of him being a locker room issue?

    John Shannon has already said they are in on him and want him/RNH signed for a total of 12 MILL US for next year. I think he just signs in EDM if he doesn't get traded there. He has wanted to go back there when he was signing in Buffalo

    He would be 3rd/4th fiddle in Edmonton. No pressure

    LW with a bigger impact on their team's shot-attempt differential than Taylor Hall this season: - Brad Marchand - That's the list

    Hall will help any team as long as he is a complimentary piece. Not "The Guy".

    People are kidding themselves if they think he would not produce on a good to great team with better guys already there.

    That also requires him to take a reasonable contract offer as well later. He cannot be paid as a teams top guy

    Yeah I don't really think that it's true but I guess anything is possible. I'd lean more towards middlestadt than anyone else on Buffalo.

    So Buffalo's end value is going to likely be less then a straight up offer for Hall.

    Team acquiring Hall is now paying cost to Buffalo, and 3rd party for cap space. Buffalo probably loses value going to the 3rd party.

    I don’t know the exact percentage left but it’s under 25% but use that

    50% retained by 2 teams gets him to $2M in cap space value and he would be owed $500K in real money after 75% retained.

    Buffalo should have kept him off roster from beginning of the season.

    I'd be shocked if the Sabres moved Mittelstadt at this point. He's cheap, still young and has been playing fantastic recently.

    He's been pulled off, to make those who are interested, believe that there is more interest than reality, to drive up the price. Smart.

    Dude's been trash from the limited games I've seen. I'd be happy with a 2nd round pick + a B level prospect, but his value around the league is hard to gauge. Hopefully name recognition carries some weight because if teams are valuing him based off this season, then a 2nd round pick is too high.
