I am surprised so many people here are convinced Hall was 100% unable to play levels of hurt last season. It was pretty obvious everyone wanted him to avoid surgery if possible and the team wasn't contending for anything. He probably could have either kept playing on it or had the surgery right away and then came back before the end of the season, but why bother given where the team was? I am seriously not worried about Hall and don't think last year is any indication of how his health will be moving forward. Black 👏 swan 👏 event 👏👏👏.

Pretty much what I think happened. Although I think I would almost always prefer the guy get the surgery right away. I'm pretty sure the number of guys that avoid ever having to have the surgery by having conservative treatment is pretty small.

EK has played more games the last 2 seasons than Hall and we are saying he is broken down?

There are many that are willing to give Hall the same just to stay.

I am not willing to give Hall 11.5m to stay. It's also worth noting that Taylor Hall is two and a half years younger than Erik Karlsson.

Everyone knows what you’re willing to give Hall to stay.

FWIW, Hall said he is almost about to start skating again.  He went down in December and it is now June.

Yeah, I am a little bit concerned.

Who is worth giving that much to stay?  Outside of Panarin or EK, nothing else available out there is worth that much.

Whatever we trade away Hall for, it's still going to leave a big void for the Devils to fill.

He didn’t have surgery in December though. He’s right on track with his recovery timetable.

What’s your point? You’re comparing Hall and Karlsson WRT injuries and contract, and I don’t think that’s even close to an apples to apples comparison.

We don’t have another 1. Pretty simple.

I suppose if the desire was to get back into the first round - you're right 

But as far as value is concerned.. That's noting

So throw 2 2nds and a better prospect than the guy who’s name sounds like the first droplet of a mildly contipated sh!t.

I agree, the value sucks.... but Winnipeg wanted to get back into the first round, and that’s what it was gonna cost. Pionk is just a throw-in who is cheap, and Winnipeg needs young, cheap talent right now.

Rags are going to be ahead of schedule. And ahead of us.

Very, very impressive moves to retool so quickly.

I would take NJs organization (players, prospects and picks) over the Rangers 10 Times out of fvcking 10.
