Around the League 15-16 Edition

Versteeg is an option again and I would love for NJ to sign him to protect Zacha as a 3rd line center.

 

Hall-Henrique-Bennett
Cammalerri-Zajac-Palmieri
Boucher-Zacha-Versteeg
JJ/Kalinin-Fiddler-DSP

You're going to need someone for when Bennett and Cammalleri inevitably go down.

If Taylor Hall was top 50, it would've taken more than Adam Larsson to land him.

The Devils got Cory Schneider (he's on that list) for the 9th pick in the draft. Adam Larsson was a top 5 pick.

It should have taken more.

Hall is arguably the 3rd best LW in the league after Ovechkin and Jamie Benn. That's puts him firmly in the top 50 in my book.

Failed physical with Swiss league team? There's a reason this guy hasn't stuck with anyone. No thanks!

They couldn't insure him is what I hear. So failed physical is more...lawyerly sports speak. But he obviously has some miles on his body.

So what? It's not a poll about draft order, it's a poll about the top 50 players. 

Schneider was drafted 26th, Larsson was #4. Does that mean Larsson is a better player than Cory?

if that's what you think, I'm glad you aren't the GM.

Right now? No. He's a talented young defenseman that was a top 5 draft pick though. He could end up being better, and that's what Edmonton is hoping for. It's not like the Devils traded a bag of pucks for Hall. Should Edmonton have got more? Probably. What it took to get him doesn't mean he's not a top 50 player though. I'll say it again:

Ahh, I see. You didn't recognize the sarcasm in my post. They really need a font or special punctuation to indicate that.

Guy is 3rd in even strength pts behind Benn and Crosby in the past few seasons. Definitely a top 50 player.

There are four LWs on that list.   Gaudreau, Panarin, Benn and Ovechkin.    Pretty debatable that the first two are not better than Hall.
