Boston already has plenty of grit and "North South" power players (Looch, Horts, Caron) on their roster. What they need is that finesse player who can stretch the ice and thinks the game at a high level.

Edmonton on the other hand has plenty of those finesse players (Eberle, RNH, Hemsky) and really lacks the grit, power and leadership that Hall provides.

It would seem that both teams already have what they need and are more than happy with these two players. Both are going to have great careers and I look forward to seeing both of them progress into the elite players they both have the potential to be.

Not to mention, Boston has Lucic & Marchand at LW. IF they were acquiring a wing, it would IMO be a RW (especially if trading away Seguin in the deal).

Trading Seguin for Hall would leave Boston with:


Horton (UFA 2013)

Bad fit
