Made this sh!tty MS Paint picture last night that I feel like is appropriate since we're all (rightfully) sh!tposting about Hall

Lol  

All we need to do, imo, to completely close this loop is: - Re-sign Hall to an extension. - Scoop up Adam Larsson when he hits free agency.

Chiarelli on the deal:  " Adam … he's a very smart player and it took him a little while to get going, but he had a terrific year this past year. He moves the puck, he defends well, he can log a lot of minutes, he can play 25, 27, 28 minutes. He can match up against all the top forwards, he can move the puck and he has more skill to show also."

 

Those are some high expectations !!

Taylor Hall seems quite peeved he got traded as a point of fact.  Takes it as "an indictment" of his talent.

Yep, said he's very motivated... Love that he's coming here feeling he has something to prove.

I'll miss Larsson and I really hope he goes on to have success. With that said, I can't believe Shero was able to get this done as a straight swap. 2 people texted me and I thought they were joking. Absolutely excellent trade for NJ! Time for Severson, Merrill, and Santini to step up. Hoping they find a way to get Merrill on the left side this year.

Just in that a No1 D is more valuable than a No1 LW. That said I am happy with this trade.

Larsson's offensive game probably won't be where its needed to make this trade make sense for them in a one for one. He might get there based just on defense but that's also a major if but its more likely. Hall has shown he's really really good at this level so its hard not to be happy.

Also it would be more likely the Devils fill the hole left by Larsson leaving with in or even makeshift in free agency then getting the need that Hall was for us

Yeah, I was a bit sideways on his comments too..

I don't feel bad about it like he thinks it sucks coming here, just the idea of being traded in and of itself, that his GM would think it's worth getting rid of him.  I'd hope that only makes him that much better here.

I honestly think we'll all miss him, he is a fine young man who wanted to be here. We all watched him grow and develop and he is still classy kid. I honestly hope he turns into an even better player up there. Still, you have toi make that trade.

He's angry they traded him and not RNH or Eberle, I'd bet. Seriously, he was THE ONE guy they should NOT have traded to get D. Really unfathomable move - you gotta wonder what Yakupov is going to think when he gets up in the morning and finds out if no one woke him up to tell him yet.

The more I see and hear from Shero the more I feel like this guy really just gets "it".

Did you catch when Stan Fischler (7:40) asked about the Devils backend... Shero said, "Outside of trading Adam, we are looking for an offensive minded Dman..."  lol I hope there's more "Offense Minded" coming to Newark over the 72 hours

Love the direction this team is going in now with the addition of Hall, this team really is getting faster and more dangerous, and I don't think Shero is done, I see one more significant move coming. The way it stands now this is how I see our forward lineup:

Hall - Henrique - Cammalleri
Boucher - Zajac - Palmieri
Blandisi - Zacha - Bennett
Kalinin - Josefson - Smith-Pelly

Obviously, way better than what we had here about 2 years ago, way faster and much more skilled.

I'm still not sold on either Blandisi or Boucher, or Josefson for that matter, but that lineup doesn't look bad. 

Would be nice if Cammalleri can give us close to a full season.

Adam is not a true #1 D though, he couldnt even crack the Sweden lineup.

Well to me you got to be a true #1 you got to be able to contribute offensively and defensively like doughty or wtv. Adam was just a shut down D.

This can't be one for one.  How is that possible?  What a huge win for NJ.

The only reason I'm quoting you:

At the draft I told you something big was going to happen cause I couldn't have any way to see it or something to that extent, happened today! haha
