";s:4:"text";s:4847:"Taylor Strba Hall (born November 14, 1991) is a Canadian professional ice hockey left winger for the Arizona Coyotes of the National Hockey League (NHL). Wouldn’t trading Hall provide you cheaper talent that’s going to stick around?But, Bourne does land on a good point, even if it’s a harsh reality for Arizona. Taylor Hall is on his way to the Arizona Coyotes as part of a blockbuster trade with the New Jersey Devils.. They’re tied for first place in the Pacific and poised to make the playoffs for the first time since 2012. Less than nine minutes into the first period, he fired home a power play blast from his favorite spot on the ice.It may have been the lone tune up for both teams, but there was plenty of chippiness in the game. Speculation about an imminent trade involving New Jersey Devils forward Taylor Hall flared up Friday when the Devils announced that Hall would sit out the team's game in Denver against the Colorado Avalanche, but a deal has not happened — yet.. Left winger Taylor Hall is on the move.. (The Blues mainly want to shake off the cobwebs by the time they face the Avs on Sunday.) He is eligible for unrestricted free agent after this season.Even if Hall doesn’t re-sign after the season it’s a worthy gamble for a team that needs to win and show its fan-base that it’s going to do what it takes to put a winner on the ice. They seized on Rangers mistakes, making it difficult for the Blueshirts to get much going.This has to be disappointing for Devils fans.The conditions on the two draft picks are as follows, via the Devils:Neither team has announced their starting goalie for Game 1 of their respective series. Taylor Hall has been traded to the Phoenix Coyotes. That’s especially true since the Blues put the difficulty mode on easy for this one, being that a) again, an exhibition, and b) there’s even less motivation for a Blues team that can ramp up and fight for seeding during the Round Robin.If Arizona’s 2020 first-round selection is in the top three, New Jersey will receive Arizona’s first-round pick in 2021.The Capitals captain netted his 48th goal in the team’s final game before the March pause and didn’t take long to open the scoring against the Hurricanes. Both are heading into best-of-five Stanley Cup Qualifier series beginning this weekend, so perfecting every little detail will be important.The conditions on the 2021 pick are as follows: the third-round pick in 2021 becomes a second-round selection if Arizona wins a Stanley Cup Playoff round OR Taylor Hall re-signs in Arizona. If neither condition happens, New Jersey still receives the 2021 third-round pick.So far, so good, even if you can only take so much from an exhibition game. Well, maybe, to quote an American poet- not so fast my friend. But you can recoup those and improve on them, otherwise, you don’t do a deal.
