Adam Larsson traded to EDM for Taylor Hall


Recommended Posts

I, too, didn't think Larsson was a tradable asset but he has underachieved for years. You can blame system, youth, coach whatever. He wasn't a bust, I just think we were looking for Neidermeyer v2 (at least I was). Seems like a reasonably fair trade to me.

Well... We lost a good defender for a good shooter... We need offense... But we need defense.... We need someone who can be a aggressive defender... But we need a aggressive attacker. I just don't know what to think. 

Pretty much how I feel.  It seems like a fair deal, where we had needs, and got them, but also lost something that we had, which now becomes a need in and of itself.  I guess in the big picture we had more offensive needs than defensive, but now it seems like it might be 60-40 when it was more like 80-20 before.

I meant to post this in this thread.





Could use another UFA d-man I suppose but much much better than last season.

I know I am in the minority but I am slightly disappointed.  

I understand, As Devils fan's we're used to being built on defense, and we just sent our biggest piece out, but there's no doubt this is a net win for us simply because we got the better player.

What will ultimately determine if this is a great vs good trade will be how Shero replaces Larsson.


Edit: I'll add the only thing that would make this better is if Hall was a center.

I'm floored losing Larsson.     But Hall outweighs Larrson; especially given our offense.
I would never have thought Larrson would pull in Hall on his own...    I would have thought some picks would be involved.
