That's just, I'm impressed, horrible. I like Larsson too.

I'm calling it now: 3 more seasons of non-playoff hockey for Edmonton.

As for Hall, #Isles didn't offer what EDM wanted, which was Hamonic. Plain and simple.

Not a like for like swap but Montreal probably would have been able to get Hall and RNH for Subban, which would have been a much better deal for them.

Two GMs and one player went mental today.

Unbelievable and insane.

Chiarelli blew this trade just as did Bergevin in Montreal. Stamkos, well I guess he decided not to help the other players by taking less money, the same amount he was offered months ago.

Suddenly, its okay today ???

Crazy, just crazy.

Well, if Luke Schenn got the Leafs JvR, it makes sense the Swedish Luke Schenn got NJ Taylor Hall.

Makes me wonder what Gardiner would be worth to them.

Figured Edmonton would trade one or more of RNH, Eberle, and Yakupov before they would ever think of dealing Hall.

Find it hard to believe the Oilers couldn't have got a better deal for Hall than Larsson! Chiarelli should be run out of town for this (or worse as others have hinted at)!  ;)

Remember, folks:  Every little awful move like this by Edmonton slowly moves McDavid in our direction once he's out of Edmonton's servitude.

So Chiarelli has been lucky enough to be able to trade both the #1 and 2 picks from the 2010 draft and he got absolutely fleeced in both.  Impressive.

Peter Chiarelli's mustache looks like a Movember mustache and it's not November.

Definite red-flag.

I feel bad for Edmonton fans.  It would just be so depressing to have such lousy management.  How could this possibly be the best return for Hall?

Well, EDM needs D, Larsson is young, hopefully he can be their rock because they paid dearly for him.

They did, but they can also make it back in spades with an RNH trade.

Hall is the better trade piece between Hall and RNH.   They aren't making anything back unless someone horrendously overpays for him.  Given that Chiarelli couldn't get value for Hall, he sure as hell isn't getting it for RNH.

He will once RNH gets his game going again, you watch.  The injury was unfortunate, but I believe he's recovered.  Centers have more value than wingers if they're on their game.  He closed out the season strong.

Seriously, what does he have against the best players from 2010?
