Don't see how you can argue that Lucic has more trade value than Hall. If Boston fans try to argue this they can ask themselves who they deem more valuable on the trade market between Seguin and Lucic.
This is an easy no from the Oilers and probably an easy no from the Bruins as well. Boston is trying to win now and Lucic is probably a more important piece on their roster at the moment given their style of play than Taylor Hall would be. He's also viewed as a god in New England. Hamilton is a better piece than Klefbom and is also the better player right now so certainly no reason for the Bruins to budge in that area.
For the Oilers Taylor Hall is the best player/piece in the trade and a huge part of their future. Obviously they need to get bigger but there's a few poor man's Milan Lucic's available in UFA this summer. Clowe, Clarkson, Morrow, Horton, Iginla for instance. I think it'd be a better idea to try and sign one of those guys than trade one of your core pieces to get bigger/tougher at the expense of offense and upside. Hamilton is an upgrade over Klefbom but not enough to justify the movement from Hall to Lucic.
