Jack Eichel has more points combined than both Howden and Kakko and he hasn’t played in almost a month. Strome is a good player, but they would lose him in a year. It doesn’t make a ton of sense.

Not close to enough in the Eichel trade
And some of those pieces (Strome for example) we wouldn’t even have interest in

I don’t think NyR has the pieces to make the deal work bc they don’t have a Byfield or Turcotte (for example) like LA does

A high end center prospect will be the top thing we are looking for in a return

He cracked his ribs working out before training camp. He currently has a neck injury, I don’t think he will play again this season. There’s really no point either.

Didn’t know about the ribs. I did know about the neck though. Was just wondering if you’ve heard any updates.

I will take one of whatever ur smoking. The bruins will definitely not trade Debrusk for 3 months of Hall, let alone adding a really good d-prospect and a 2nd. The Sabres would be lucky if Hall can even fetch them a first at this point.

Debrusk is not worth what you think he's worth either

DeBrusk in 13 less games and the biggest slump of his career.....still has more goals than Taylor Hall this year.

Feel free to trade Hall to a team that wants to buy a name/hype, because that's all Hall is. Former #1OA and captain was traded to NJD, then traded to ARZ, now w/ BUF and looking like a guy who couldn't care less about the season.

Taylor Hall before Eichel injury:
23GP / 2G / 12A / 0.52 PGP

Taylor Hall after Eichel injury:
11GP / 0G / 4A / 0.36 PGP
