This will be a rude awakening to all those Buffalo fans that were insistent on Hall returning a 1st and a good prospect.
That is a good trade for Boston
Huge return for Boston.
Just look at how many players underperformed for Krueger.
Hall will be fine in Boston.
Boston won by a mile... Maybe a few miles
By at least a first round pick.
Lazar is better than Bjork, when Buffalo needs to win a face off, Lazar is put on the ice.
Thats all it took? wow that is cheaper than I thought for a guy who could become his Hart trophy form from 2018
IMO the other GM's know Adams is over his head and underpaid in every trade he made. I am not surprised.
A part of me was thinking he would get a conditional first honestly. But Boston may miss the playoffs if they don't preform and somehow NYR or Philly starts doing well again
Adams failed another test.
After TML picked up Foligno, NYI added Palmieri and PIT traded for Carter I knew the only team left looking for a forward and Adams would need to settle for 2nd.
Either Adams is very high on Bjork, or he himself is just very, very high.
Kevyn is just high and every GM fleeced him.
Just endless suffering in Buffalo these days
At least Granato has them playing much better.
I second this
Yup, when Adams was anointed GM everyone in my hockey circle knew it would be the worst of time.
Hahahaha Nick Foligno and David Savard got 1sts. I mean Hall had a **** year but damn.
Do not forget Palmieri also returned a first.
Playing for a team that had been shut out 7 times this year he still had more pts than Palmieri or Foligno.
BOS didn't even need to pay a 1st? This is a huge win, especially given that Bjork is almost done developing and isn't good.
BJork was added IMO for Cap space, I do not think he will be a Sabre after his contract expires.
This is what I expected Hall to go for. Should be a solid 2nd liner for Boston.
It's weird to see Boston acquiring Canadian players, besides Marchand/Bergeron, their team is mostly American players.
Hall will excel for Boston.
Somehow Savard is worth a 1st and a 3rd, but Hall is worth a 2nd.
I asked the same question. I said above, IMO every NHL GM knows he is over his head and took advantage of his low hockey IQ.
