It isn’t entirely unfair to wonder if whatever is infecting Taylor Hall has a hold of the rest of the locker room too. 

if anyone’s not listened to spitting chiclets I think it’s a must-listen for hockey fans; but MackKinnon (I think?) talked about the duchene trade and said even though we lost an incredible player, one of our best, it took a big weight off the locker room because there wasn’t a daily “I wonder if he’s being dealt” thought process in the room. It made the locker room feel more settled and allowed for new leaders (him) to step up. 

I fully agree with this and it's not that hard to imagine, they've been relying on him so much and seeing him as a leader. Even if you're a paid professional it has to be hard to really follow someone you don't know will be your teammate the next day.

I would definitely not object to getting Caufield. I think he will be a great player, irrespective of how he has done on Jack's wing in the past. I mentioned Primeau because he is such a great goaltending prospect. He has performed very well at every level so far, and I would bet on him being an effective NHL goalie too. Having a goalie his age with the rest of the core of this team would be a really good foundation for a competitive team.

Also, regarding the article that @MadDog2020 posted, I would hope that Shero has enough insight to realize that if Hall is not signed near the trade deadline, he needs to be traded. I think there's a lot of middle ground between "great" and "terrible" where Shero would still trade Hall. Good thing Lou is gone.

This whole thing has been incredibly weird cause it's the first time ever that Shero let a situation like this get this far. He always signed his upcoming top UFAs in july or august at the latest. To let it go in the season is unheard of.

Caufield dropped super far in the draft but I have to think he's highly valued. A Hall rental 1 for 1 probably won't get it done. A trade involving those two would have a lot of extra this and that going both ways. 

He didn't really drop he was projected late first round and he actually rise a bit after the world juniors

What angst is there here over whether Hall will be traded?  Other than from Hall himself.  It's not like we have an inquisitive or antagonistic media that's going to make it a daily issue?

According to Joshua Marshall, Taylor Hall has informed his agent that he wants a trade as of a few days ago.The Edmonton Oilers are the number one team on his list.”

Seems like it could be a troll post though. And sorry about the huge text, it’s a copy and paste.

Pretty sure I saw him within the top 10 a lot. Like just outside the top 5. He got taken at least 15 or something. Dropping like 8 spots is dropping to me.

like i said he was a late riser cause he produced a lot at the world juniors and to end his season but in january he was projected about where he was picked.

Here's an articule revisiting early pre-season projections where he was projected 19. https://thehockeywriters.com/2019-nhl-draft-revisiting-preseason-rankings/

And here's a ranking from january where he's actually ranked 15th  https://www.sportsnet.ca/hockey/nhl/sportsnets-2019-nhl-draft-prospect-rankings-january/

I think I was the insider who floated that trade rumor on this board a few days ago. I mean I am the assistant GM after all.

There were rumors that Halls father was meeting with the Oilers brass so it’s worth at least acknowledging.

It’s a discussion forum Devils fans come for news, it’s also one that’s banned hockeybuzz in the past. All offseason we were inundated with that trash 14 year old’s blog that literally fabricates information so it’s getting tiresome acknowledging its existence. 

my cousin worked as a security guard outside the locker rooms in the 2013-2014 season but nobody would be thrilled if I started calling him a source.

No one was calling him a "source". Your point is moot

In fact it was specifically noted to be trash. But it still exists so it can be discussed, until the topic becomes “things that @MB3 approves of”.

Hall knows dam well that he will be traded if he doesnt sign by the deadline.. but what if we are 2 pts in the playoffs at that time? and he is on fire with X amount of games left to play? things get interesting... but you have to trade him, shero

oh so that’s what you wanna do today. 

lol. Y’all talk about whatever. We had “NHL RUMORS DOT ME” deleted ad nauseam in the offseason so it seems silly to discuss what a 14 year old thinks about the whole topic. No, I don’t believe Hall has demanded a trade to Edmonton and no, I don’t believe hall’s dad has negotiated with the fvcking oilers.

Short of the devils winning like 16 straight and immediately thrusting themselves into the league’s elite tier, the only way Taylor Hall should finish this season in a devils jersey is if he agreed to an extension.

I don’t believe it either. But the way you react to people mentioning that site is odd. He didn’t even do it as if he believed it. 

Regardless, it’s not up to you what people talk about, whether you like the content or you don’t.

Agree. Even if we squeak into the playoffs, you have to assume we’d have no shot to win. Retaining him and not getting assets back when he leaves after a first round elimination would be monumentally stupid.

The longer it takes for him to decide to sign here, the more I want him moved. Hall to Toronto for Nylander? Dallas for Sequin? Col for Zadarov +, Loosapeg for Roslovic?

Taylor Hall on a rental isn't worth any of those guys.

The object is to add hall for improvement at a PO run.. not swapping starting talent... teams will give up picks and prospects and secondary players..

Yup, but the suitor then needs to be able to afford signing him long term..  so, a big market Canadian team in the playoff hunt with 10 mil in cap space..

I think it's pretty clear he is going to test the market. Which again hurts our potential for a return.

You would need a probably 1st or 2nd  contingent on him signing/staying.
