I wonder why only 1 year, if we make the playoffs can we woo him to stay 

Pretty sure this is a tryout contract, for us.  Hall needs to see that we aren't as ***** up as the rumors say.

Well at least we'll win the lottery now 

That's a mixed blessing, right?

I wouldn't get too excited, its only a 1 year deal, he didn't convince him to spend the rest of his career here

He is getting $8 mil to play one year for a coach who he played well for before and will be a FA again next year.

Move Cozens and Olofsson, we don't want to put too much pressure on this kid. Haven't we learned that?

I don’t really like Cozens-Eakin-Thompson as a line though. 2 youth players plus a vet who had a bad year last year- not exactly a recipe for success. I wanted Olofsson to go down to line 3 to spread the talent a bit more so it doesn’t get caved in quite as much.

We still need goalie help, not sure where we attain that.

Wonder if the Blue jackets want him for a goalie?

This is okay. We have a season to see how it works. If it's working and we're playoffs we talk extension.

So,

Hall - Eichel - Olofsson

Skinner - Staal - Reinhart

Girgensons - Eakin - Okposo

Thompson - Lazar - Cozens

Reider

I think Ullmark can get us to the Playoffs

I don't like Ullmark starting 60 games. Or maybe should say worry if Hutton plays more than 20.

Not thrilled w/ the bottom 6, but the top 6 is legit.

Good move for Hall too. Gets a year to put up numbers playing with Jack and more money available next year if Buffalo doesn't workout

Exactly.  With Cozens and Okposo switching as cozens develops

More than a one year deal and he would have to be protected from Seattle.
