Not sure how it'll work out, but I loved what we saw from Hall. Happy to see him back.

I think at least 1 forward will be involved in a trade.

It seems that they have decided to not bring Gagne back or he and his agent have asked for too much money or years or a bigger role.

I like the Hall signing though. Solid defensive player who knows his role and seems to be a great team guy. Similar to Darrol Powe but more suited for playing center.

Glad we signed him , this will hopefully mean that Laughton will not play in NHL until the 2014-15 season. Really don't won't Scott to play a 4th role line since Couts will most likely be our 3rd line center.

I am glad to have him back. You cannot have enough faceoff winners!

Why not? Mike Richards started out on the 4th line.

This could be a good faceoff team for once.

Halls numbers are ridiculous. I'm glad they signed him. I think they finally realized we need to get better at the dot to be a better team. Better faceoff percentage = more possession. We will be able to dictate the tempo of the game more.

This is an aspect we never replaced with the departure of Richards and Carter. Also to an lesser extent Blair Betts.

Adam Hall......good signing

Yeah seems likely Talbot is gone..maybe even Gagne. I know Talbot had a slow start but right before he got injured he was doing very well. Him and Fedotenko were really good on the PK. Not sure who picks up the slack for the both of them.

As far as faceoffs....looks like we'll be much better. Remember that Laughton is pretty good on the dot as well even though he's still a rookie. At least now it won't have to be all Giroux..

Couturier - Read/Laughton

Hall - Talbot

You have your PK guys. Talbot is the perfect defensive 4th liner. He's no Lappy, but really, in the grand scheme of things, how many people are Laperriere?

You have to keep him. He makes your team better.

This also makes DAMN SURE we don't see Giroux on the PK anymore. Sure, he can hack it on the PK, but we need him with as much gas as possible in the tank during offensive situations.

Good cheap signing to solidify the bottom line. Hall played very good defense first hockey at the end there. Hope to see some more of that this year for a very negligible cap hit.

Talbot is made from the same mold as Laperriere. Will play in whatever role the coach tells him to and will jump in front of a train to win.

As angry as I was on draft day, I'm pretty impressed with how Holmgren has improved the team to compete now and in the future. Plus, he now has Giroux signed long-term. David Poile is deleting the Offer Sheet file from his laptop as we speak.

He hasn't deleted the Schenn and Couturier files yet though.

I'd hope that Hall would spend lots of time with Couturier and, to a lesser degree, Schenn (just in case) to show them the tricks of the FO trade.

I don't see the necessity for any trades amongst the current forward crop.

loved the acquisition when we got em and couldn't believe they locked up rosehill first. so glad they wised up.

I like that laughton gets another year of junior out of this as well. let the kid play top line minutes and excel. no need to expect every kid to make the team before they can get in a bar
