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 kind of relief that we aren't the team that will sign Hall his next contract... I know that we have to pay to have star player and all that... but since his injury (i mean.. the last one), something was off with him and his skating. Ok maybe this contract things was difficult for him to handle or anything like that but he wasn't the Hall we loved. 

Isn't a Parise 2.0 situation there ? 

I'm not that mad at the return we had tonight... It's in the range of what we could expect. Nothing crazy i agree... but also nothing crazy ; )

"It's always nice to feel wanted" - dude, we loved you for almost your entire tenure here. Some mouth breathers booed the entire team and you made something out of nothing.

Man am I glad he's gone.

Before people start ripping into the guy, this is the classic line every player gives when they're traded and it usually is in reference to a team wanting to trade for them and being willing to give up assets for them and is not a shot at the player's former team.

Here's some context:

Return was about what I expected, so I can't say that I'm disappointed.  This is NOT a disaster scenario, as far as Hall being dealt goes...a true disaster scenario would've been Hall suffering a serious injury or him being here past the deadline.  Glad that neither one came to fruition.

Time really flew since that "one for one" announcement...hard to believe Taylor was here for over three seasons...felt much shorter. 

Nothing against him.  He turned in one of the finest seasons ever for a Devils forward.  He didn't constantly complain about his situation and said a lot of right things about needing to do more to help his team.  It just didn't work out in the end. 

Not going to dwell on his leaving...it's done and I'm glad it's over.  We'll see what comes next.

What if Ray now signs Hall in the summer...............

could you imagine... if this whole thing was just Hall being insane... wanting to stay in NJ but wanted the team to get more assets... so sacrificed this season and would re-sign next summer lol

Our fan base is not the most hockey-savvy in the bunch; it's been that way for a long time. Hall might be a little sensitive in terms of his comments, but the fact that people booed him when he didn't back up his MVP performance again and again is silly. He was not the issue most (read: just about every) night. This team will not improve by getting rid of talent like his over the long run.

The optimism of this offseason was met with horrific, league-low, goaltending. End of story.

Sorry my friend, it's only slightly less of a disaster that we got something for him, rather than him suffering an injury and getting nothing.  As I said before, if someone told you on June 29, 2016 that this was how it was going to end -- a first round pick probably in the 20-30, a borderline NHL prospect and two career AHLers -- you would have figured them for the biggest a-hole Ranger fan imaginable.  It's awful for the franchise that it got to this point.  There's no way you can argue otherwise.

Well, it’s certainly a disappointing end to the Taylor Hall era but I think Ray was smart to end it now and Bahl + 1st and 3rd isn’t too bad.  The big sin was not seeing if this group was capable of more with an actual competent coach.

He's a rental on the last year of his deal. There seems to be no extension coming in the immediate future, based on today's reports. What did you want for him?

I didn't say it was an ideal ending to the Hall chapter.  But under these circumstances, it wasn't going to get much better than this.

It's a discussion for another thread, but someone is ultimately responsible for "under these circumstances," and Lou and Conte haven't had anything to do with the franchise for almost five years now.

I wanted to this to be a good team at this point that would be in a position where it actually wanted to sign a 28 year old Hart trophy winner to a long term extension so that it could have sustained success.  Instead we were forced to sell him for stuff that is not very likely to be part of any sustained success down the road.  What matters most is how we got to this point.  And the buck stops here apparently doesn't apply in this organization anymore.

Trading a guy who will not-resign with you is not a disaster. 

Letting guys like Nieds, Gomez, Holik, Rafaslski, gionta etc etc walk for nothing...  thats a disaster.

Then losing Kovalchuk. Getting a penalty THEN NOT giving up a first round pick when we could give up a 30th pick just so we can draft Matteau... and then get Quenneville at #31 instead of potentially Pastrnak, Larkin etc etc where we could have picked and few years later not even have matteau and Queneville on our roster. That's a disaster. 

And those things happened out of systematic stubbornness and "now" mentality. Not out of "a situation not-panning out" like Shero is dealing with now

"I wanted this to be a good team..."

So did every  other NJ Devils fans in the world. Any other breath-taking insights?

It would be nice to not have a team that presses mute on coach, or a to have a goalie who can play above .900 but here we are. Hell, it would be nice to have a 6th overall pick who didn't turn out to be only PZ or a 12th overall pick who didn't turn into MM. Sometimes that's how this goes.

Ray Shero just traded a 28 year old former MVP that we all wanted to sign to a longterm extension not too long for stuff that will not help this team get any better.   You are actually saying this is what you would prefer to the almost unprecedented sustained streak of success that we had in the Lou years because he didn't trade Nieds, Gomez, Holik, Rafalski and Gionta?

I agree, and there's someone who's responsible for that.  Again, it's a more specific discussion for another thread.  But the undeniable point is that it sucks that it got to this point.
