Hall doesn't even play PK on a bottom-5 NHL team. Carter was PKing for a contender. He's scored 40+ goals in the league before. He was on pace for 45 last year itself.

He's scored big goals in big playoff games his whole career. He's a big body, he can skate, he can score, and he can play a 2-way game.

Doesn't seem like a big mistake to me. You need your role players on this team.

The only role Hall's ever showed he can play - and he does it quite well - is a top-line scoring player. But now he's up against names like Crosby, Staal, Giroux, and Stamkos for that role. That's why he's getting cut.
