Yeah, Hall had one "He's the man" season, but that is not who Hall really is or ever truly was. He can be a really good complementary player in the right situation. Boston is 100% the right situation for him. Sure, he could've made plenty more if he signed here before the 2018-19 season, but I doubt it would've worked out...for one, he would've forever been compared against his career-year MVP season...he would've been a vastly overpaid 60-65 point guy (assuming he wouldn't ever miss significant time, which we can't possibly do). He would've been a lightning rod for any Devils failures, due to his contract and the fact that he wouldn't be able to come close to 2017-18...he would've received a lot of blame, even if it wasn't fair...guys like him can become convenient whipping boys very quickly. He's now part of a good team where he's on a very reasonable contract (his AAV his only a little more than Adam Henrique...let THAT sink in) and won't be asked to do too much. It's about as win-win for him and the Bruins as it gets. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
