Again, I don't know much about him, but I do know the Yotes don't lack for good young d-men. The 1st is nice, and I can't comment too much on the straight value of the proposal because I don't know too much about Hale. However, there doesn't appear to me to be much of a reason for the Yotes to part with their number one center, and top 3 dmen.
Well I wouldn't support giving him up Gionta either. He might be the hardest worker on the Devils and thats saying a lot.

Hale on the other hand is one of the defensive prospects getting set to replace Stevens. He won't be moved either. Maybe if you replace Hale with Martin.
