Report: Coyotes definitely interested in trading for Hall

  Report: Coyotes definitely interested in trading for Hall The Arizona Coyotes are definitely interested in trading for New Jersey Devils star Taylor Hall, TSN's Darren Dreger reported on Thursday's edition of "Insider Trading." Hall, 28, is in the final year of his current deal, which carries an annual cap hit of $6 million. He's scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent in July, and Devils GM Ray Shero is reportedly listening to potential offers for the blue-chip winger.

With the introduction of Taylor Hall in Winnipeg, they may be able to trade away Patrick Laine or This is a win for both teams and could be the first double sign and trade in history; wouldn’t that be cool? His contract is one of the better bargains in the NHL at only $ 5 . 5 million for the next 4 seasons.

According to the latest NHL trade rumors, Taylor Hall isn't interested in signing an extension with the Devils. Three years later, Hall still makes a ton of sense for Montreal. First of all, the Habs have the cap space to add him. A debate can be had if it would be worth it to add him for one year, but it’s

The Taylor Hall sweepstakes are officially underway, and they may not be here long.

The pending unrestricted free agent sat out New Jersey's most recent game Friday and he's expected to do so again Saturday. It appears the former Hart Trophy winner has played his last game with the Devils.

Here are the five teams with the best chances of landing the superstar forward.

Colorado Avalanche

Record: 21-8-3 (1st in Central)

Cap space this season: $6.4M

Projected 2020-21 cap space: $23.6M

No team is in a better position to land Hall and his $6-million cap hit. The Avalanche check off all the boxes: They are Stanley Cup contenders, hold the necessary draft pick capital, boast a prospect pipeline bursting with talent, and have ample cap space this season and moving forward for a possible extension.

Seton Hall's Mamukelashvili expected to miss 6-8 weeks with broken wrist

  Seton Hall's Mamukelashvili expected to miss 6-8 weeks with broken wrist Seton Hall starting forward Sandro Mamukelashvili will likely miss six-to-eight weeks after breaking his right wrist in the first half of Sunday's loss to Iowa State. "They took an X-ray and it looked like he broke one of the bones," Pirates head coach Kevin Willard told AM970 The Answer postgame, according to Adam Zagoria of NJ Advance Media. "We won't know the extent of the timeline until we get back and get an MRI (Monday). But it's a"They took an X-ray and it looked like he broke one of the bones," Pirates head coach Kevin Willard told AM970 The Answer postgame, according to Adam Zagoria of NJ Advance Media.

Playing against Taylor Hall 5 -6 times per year would be tough, but getting a player of Gostisbehere’s caliber and the 11th overall pick is a great haul. There are going to be super-high quality players at this position in the draft including possibly Matthew Boldy, Peyton Krebs, and others.

According to the latest NHL trade rumors, Taylor Hall isn't interested in signing an extension with the Devils. Yes, another Metropolitan Division team . It would be weird for the Devils to trade Taylor Hall within the division, but they’d be foolish to immediately eliminate seven potentially interested teams .

Colorado may be the best team in the NHL, and the addition of Hall would turn it into the clear Cup favorite. He could suit up alongside Nathan MacKinnon and Mikko Rantanen on the top line or anchor a second line with Nazem Kadri and one of Joonas Donskoi or Andre Burakovsky. Either way, the Avs would become a legitimate nightmare for opponents.

Whether the Devils are looking for forward or defense help, the Avs have it. Forwards Shane Bowers (acquired from the Senators in the Matt Duchene trade) and Martin Kaut are both former first-round picks. If the Avalanche refuse to part with 2019 fourth overall pick Bowen Byram, they could dangle blue-liner Conor Timmins, the 32nd selection in 2017, as a part of a big package.

Devils hold Hall out vs. Avalanche as precaution

  Devils hold Hall out vs. Avalanche as precaution The New Jersey Devils are withholding Taylor Hall from the lineup on Friday night against the Colorado Avalanche for precautionary reasons, the team announced just before the opening faceoff. The Devils had nothing to report on a potential trade, a club spokesman told reporters, including The Athletic's Corey Masisak. However, there's been some traction in trade talks, so it's not worth it for the club to risk playing the 28-year-old at the moment, reports TSN's Pierre LeBrun.Hall took part in the pregame warmup, according to The Record's Abbey Mastracco.

According to the latest NHL trade rumors, Taylor Hall isn't interested in signing an extension with the Devils. Free agency will likely be the Devils best (and potentially last) shot at convincing the 2017-18 Hart Trophy Just about every NHL team will be interested in trading for Taylor Hall if he’s available.

According to the latest NHL trade rumors, Taylor Hall isn't interested in signing an extension with the Devils. Meanwhile, the Predators would add a top-notch wing who could carry their second line. If they miss out on Matt Duchene, adding Hall would make a lot of sense for Nashville.

Cap space this season: $1.5M

Projected 2020-21 cap space: $22.75M

Don't put anything past Jim Rutherford.

The Penguins are enjoying an outstanding season so far despite having both Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin in the lineup for just six of the team's 32 games. Don't be surprised if the savvy, veteran general manager makes a splash to give his squad another shot at a Stanley Cup while Sid and Geno are still elite.

Pittsburgh's farm system isn't what you'd consider rich. However, defenseman Pierre-Olivier Joseph (acquired from the Coyotes in the Phil Kessel trade) plus 2019 first-rounder Samuel Poulin and additional draft picks could get it done.

Pittsburgh may have to include struggling forward Alex Galchenyuk ($4.9 million AAV) in the deal to make it work cap-wise. Galchenyuk is a pending UFA, but the Devils could showcase him until the trade deadline to build his value before flipping him to another team.

According to the latest NHL trade rumors, Taylor Hall isn't interested in signing an extension with the Devils. How awkward would it be for New York Islanders general manager Lou Lamoriello to call up his old team and ask about Taylor Hall ?

There have been rumors circulating that Taylor Hall wants to test the free agent market and see what he can get for his services on the open market. Losing him for nothing is not an option. That means the Devils would explore trading the former Hart-Trophy winner. Here we will explore five possible

David Poile is another general manager who isn't a stranger to a blockbuster trade. Poile and Devils GM Ray Shero have recent history too, as the Predators sent P.K. Subban to New Jersey this past summer.

The Preds are currently on the outside of the playoff picture looking in, but they have games in hand, and it feels like the organization is in win-now mode. Hall could help it reach the playoffs, and if Pekka Rinne or Juuse Saros get hot, this team is capable of going on a run.

Someone like pending UFA Craig Smith ($4.25 million AAV) may have to be included for cap reasons, but the Devils could also retain up to 50% of Hall's salary. Nashville could use highly touted prospects Philip Tomasino and Eeli Tolvanen, along with a collection of draft picks, as trade bait.

Coyotes acquire Taylor Hall from Devils for picks, prospects

  Coyotes acquire Taylor Hall from Devils for picks, prospects The Arizona Coyotes have landed Taylor Hall. Arizona on Monday acquired the standout winger from the New Jersey Devils for three prospects and two draft picks. The Coyotes will try to end their seven-year playoff drought by adding the 2018 NHL MVP who has made the postseason just once in his first nine seasons. Hall goes to the Coyotes along with Blake Speer in exchange for forward prospects Nick Merkley, and Nate Schnarr, defensive prospect Kevin Bahl, a 2020 first-round pick and a conditional third-rounder in 2021.

Taylor Hall Bio. Hall is one the few players who can say he's broken scoring records once held by Wayne Gretzky. That deal brought to New Jersey one of the NHL's best young forwards, a player The first team to benefit from the scoring and playmaking skills Hall honed on that backyard rink was

According to the latest NHL trade rumors, Taylor Hall isn't interested in signing an extension with the Devils. Much like Panarin, Hall is an elite wing who can drive his own line. Plus, Florida’s a pretty nice place to live. Best of all, Florida has no income tax, which means Hall could keep more of his

Cap space this season: $6M

Projected 2020-21 cap space: $17.3M

Lou Lamoriello has remained quiet amid all the Hall rumors, but the "Godfather" could have some tricks up his sleeve.

The Islanders have been one of the league's most consistent teams this season, but adding another much-needed game-breaking talent alongside Mathew Barzal would go a long way in helping the team's Stanley Cup chances.

Both Barzal and Ryan Pulock are RFAs this summer, but the Islanders would likely still have enough cap space to offer Hall a long-term contract.

In addition to the necessary cap space, the Islanders also have multiple high-end prospects, including 2018 first-round picks Oliver Wahlstrom and Noah Dobson. Since Shero would be negotiating with a division rival, he'd be wise to demand at least one of them as part of a hefty package.

St. Louis Blues

Record: 19-8-6 (2nd in Central)

Cap space this season: $20,326

Projected 2020-21 cap space: $7.72M

Why not try and make it back-to-back Stanley Cups, right?

Cap space may be tight, but there's a way to navigate this. Goaltender Jake Allen, who carries a $4.35-million hit this season and next, could head the other way. Allen owns a sparkling .925 save percentage during his resurgent season and could potentially help solve New Jersey's goaltending woes.

Obviously, other pieces, such as prospects Jordan Kyrou or Klim Kostin, may have to be involved as well. One thing is clear, though: If Doug Armstrong truly wants to take a run at Hall, he has the ammunition to do so.

Hall's agent: Re-signing with Coyotes 'absolutely a possibility' .
Taylor Hall's agent, Darren Ferris, isn't ruling out the idea of the star forward staying with the Arizona Coyotes on a long-term basis. "It's absolutely a possibility," Ferris told The Athletic's Craig Morgan. "(The recent trade) gives Arizona an opportunity that it probably would not have been afforded for him to consider in the future because you just don't know where the mindset would be at the end of the year. "It's absolutely a possibility," Ferris told The Athletic's Craig Morgan.
