What are the odds a team in first place at Xmas wins the lottery? 

They're in first place in a weak division and I think only two points out of missing the playoffs.  So if there are some unfortunate injuries they could be in the lottery where there would be at least 3% chance that they get a pick in the top 3 which means the pick slides to next year.

Bahl is obviously the most intriguing of the three prospects coming back. 6'6", 230 lb left shot defenseman that's going to be playing with Ty Smith on Team Canada at the World Juniors in a couple wee

So Taylor Hall admitted in his recent interview after playing PUBG that he “definitely” recognizes some of the same fans in the building every game.  And you guys laughed at me for wearing assles

I’m not going to worry about a 3% chance lol

That's only if they are the best team of that misses the playoffs.  It's plausible that they slide to a point where they have a ten percent shot at getting in the top 3.

Seems like a pretty fair deal considering all of the factors. Obviously not ideal but i'm happy we can move forward.

I'll be rooting for Arizona and Hall this season regardless of the pick status, they kind of remind me of us in that there were questions regarding finances and possible relocation so I'm glad they can inject some excitement and hopefully make a good run.

I can believe he never talked contracts with Hall’s agent if he was told or got the feeling there was no chance he’d sign one. But his line about “never thought we have no chance to sign him” kind of contradicts that.

Anecdotal yes, but it seems after marinating on this and checking comments on instagram/facebook/twitter, hockey fans from all sorts of teams have the opinion that we won this trade.  I saw a lot of comments ragging on Arizona for mortgaging their future prospects on a rental player with injury history. Only time will tell, of course, but the general social media milieu skews on the Devils side.

Not sure if this was posted yet, but an analysis of where the Yotes and Devils will land following this trade.. pretty interesting to see that Bruins or Panthers could be in the mix for a landing spot for Hall in 2020-2021, but I think we expected the Oilers and Av's to be on this list. Anyways, rebuild 2.0 on.

I think we won the trade as much as we could.   If you can resign him, you do that.   If you can't, you can't let the dude walk for free...  especially playing for nothing.
 I don't think we get a much better deal this past offseason given the question marks around his health...   and plus, we had a legit shot of resigning him if things fell right.

We did the best we could with the crap hand we had.   We won as much as we could be winners here.

mmm what?

They never exchanged potential contract offers and he never thought we have no chance to sign him?

 

Sigh, what the hell are we to make of this.

So there was never an official offer made to Hall?  Would he have been receptive to one?  

If he never thought that a deal was impossible.. why would he have not at least put an offer in front of Hall?

No offers "exchanged"  could mean we made one, but they didn't counter nor accept.
Or they came with a number that was too pricey to even counter.

Or it's just GM speak.

If Hall did that... well first it would blow my mind. Second, it would be the single most loyal thing I've ever heard a player to do for this organization.  I would welcome him back with a seven year contract and never question his loyalty again.

Ok, so that was dreamworld.  In the real world he will likely sign with some team in our division and then beat the hell outta us for years to come.

Doe this mean were not making the playoffs???? 🤓 j/k

All kidding aside, Whether you liked Hall or not it was a trade that needed to be made. Hall needed the change of scenery as much as we did, if there was any chance of him signing long term (which IMHO there was not) it was gone by mid October. Though I do not think he was a cancer I firmly believe the longer this dragged on the more negative effects on the other players there were. His next contract needed to get done, there is a lot of mental masturbation probably going on in his head, what if I get hurt, is this team I'm on any good, if I wait UFA $$ Years location...Etc... Ray I'm sure ran the numbers and took what was the best deal.

We have a good foundation with Nico/Jack/Pickles/MB2 now ad picks and prospects on def like Smith/Walsh now Bahl plus whatever we can trade out at deadline this year not to mention new coaches with (hopefully) a new system. As a Devil fan I'm disappointed in this years team but I'm excited about their future. Lets Go Devils!!!!!

Because Hall said he wasn’t ready to discuss it until he saw the team’s direction. Why would you put a contract on the table for a guy who says he’s not going to discuss it yet? That would be terrible negotiating.

That would be like when you broke up with your girl, all your buddies said how ugly and annoying she was, and then you get back together. 

Did I get that right @SterioDesign??

Yes.

The funniest thing it happened to me last year lol a buddy of mine broke up with his crazy gf. We all told him how fvcking insane she was and he agreed. 

Got a new girlfriend.. cheated on her with her ex and got her pregnant... and of course it was awkward everytime we'd see them lol but now they broke up again and he has to pay child support for god knows how long and the guy is like 45 years old.

See. Our situation is NOT that bad :P

 

The opposite also works... when your friend keep telling you how fvcking amazing his new gf is... how lucky he got and that she's perfect, she has it all!!!... but then she leave him and suddenly she was the biggest bitch, he's wayyy better off without her anyway and she was no good at all. lol (let's just not pretend we didn't see this happen here haha)
