It would be lunacy not to consider all the options available and then to weigh those options imo. Stauffer suggests that the Oilers have another hole to fill with a trade. Perhaps. But, at the least, moving Hall to centre for a few games gives them some added versatility with Hall later on. It's not going to destroy his game to learn to play centre. What's better? Giving up a bunch of assets to fill a No. 1 centre position temporarily? Overpaying a UFA? Bringing in a lesser player to temporarily fill that important spot? Hall tried it out and fared well at it before. I'm not sure why this is the worst idea ever. It may not be the right decision, but it should be weighed amongst other options.
