How else are you going to get Hall if you're Buffalo? They got 2 free assets by signing Hall. Sure it's a "win" for Boston, but Buffalo wasn't going anywhere this year, and they basically bought a second round pick and a youngish depth forward. That's what the NTC got them. It got Hall exactly where he wanted to be all along. Worked for everybody in this situation.BillP. wrote: ↑Fri Apr 16, 2021 8:16 amHeard on Dreger/Ferraro podcast that Vegas gave a better offer for Hall, but Hall wanted to go to Boston. Ferraro said he can't believe teams give out trade protection to players. He said the list should only be like this long for players like McDavid, Draisaitl, MacKinnon, Crosby, etc. and that's it.
...but whatever, the Blues won the Cup!!!!!
