Hi. I’m “Gio Palermo”, also known as “legorocks99” (“legorocks99Gaming”, “LR99Gaming”, or “LR99”). I post video game commentaries on YouTube revolving around “hockey”, with a primary focus on “Vancouver Canucks”, “Montreal Canadiens”, “Detroit Red Wings”, and top “NHL prospects” topics. These videos are uploaded with “NHL 21” gameplay in the background. I enjoy making these videos and I hope that you enjoy watching them!

  1. Bennett is a constant goal scorer in the playoffs and brings a physical element that Hall doesn’t. Unlike the Bruins, FLA is rather certain to make the playoffs.

    Hall is a much better regular season player than Bennett, but come playoff time Bennett is the much more well rounded player and the better goal scorer.

    Considering the importance of having proven playoff performers, especially if the team is sitting in a practically certain playoff position, I feel the return for Bennett was what it should be. Even the if it was more of a return BUF received for the better skilled player in Hall.

    Also Hall had a (NTC) – no trade clause that when interviewed he brought up that the NTC played a big part of him being traded to BOS. Hall basically forced BUF’s hand to trade him to BOS even though there were probably better trade offers from other teams.

  2. Florida, Tampa and Toronto all overpaid to get the player they wanted as there’ll all in, Florida and Toronto it’s their best chance either teams had a decade plus and Tampa wants to repeat, all 3 had different needs and Hall didn’t fit that need. The Caps overpaid to get cost certainty and cap space they need to resign Ovi. GM’s for once were smart here, Hall was a massive disappointment this yr didn’t make the Yotes any better last yr and has trended down for 3 yrs now, then there’s that 8mil cap hit, for most teams interested in Hall they would have had to move a good roster player cap reasons hurting the teams depth and possible chemistry, move a pick or prospect then get a third team involved again for cap reasons losing another asset and for once all 30 GM’s made the smart move. In the end it sounded like it didn’t matter anyways Hall had the final say which handcuffed Adams and got all Boston was willing to offer. I think a experienced GM would have made Hall sweat a little, waited to the last hr to pull the trigger on a trade by that point Hall would’ve been more open to other offers just to get out of Buffalo but I still don’t think there was a first on the table more likely still and second with a high end prospect but what’s that saying, hindsight is 20/20.

  3. NHL Central Scouting had Sam Bennett rated #1 overall in the 2014 draft but dropped to 4th when drafted. So he had qualities of a top NHL player but never fully realized his potential.

  4. This was the biggest hosing during the entire deadline. Bennett is ok, but man o man is he not worth two seconds

  5. The apparent "value" comparison here is not a reflection of what Bennet vs Hall brings to the game. It's a refelction of both owners tightening up the budget in terms of real salary being paid out since they've lost ticket revenue, AND a reflection of the cap not increasing as was expected prior to the virus.

    Using this trade to compare what the two players bring to the ice is pointless.

  6. Bennett is a 24 year old that still has a few RFA years left and Hall is an over rated player with a gigantic 1 year contract that will be a UFA at the end of the season…. How is this even a hot take???? There is a reason why Hall only went for a 2nd it's because he sucks now and he's turning 30

  7. Hall chose Boston. Hard to negotiate with one team when the player holds all the cards. Buffalo was fortunate to get a second. There were better offers but Hall would not go to those teams. A second round pick is better than nothing. On the surface it seems the Sabres didn't get much but they were severely limited by his no trade clause.

  8. Its cause hall had a full no trade clause so he chose boston offer and refuse all other team with better offer. Buffalk sabers had some better offer on the table but he was obligated to pick the teams that hall wanted to go. Probably these team, knowing hall would only go there, made weak offer cause they knew buffalo gm was obligated to trade him to them.

  9. Sam Bennett is a useful player on an ok value contract. He's a center which automatically has some value, and he's an RFA which means if you desire to keep him you can do so for the same money going forward. Ok Faceoff man. Good hitter good takeaways vs giveaway numbers. Taylor Hall is an expensive goal scorer who isn't scoring goals. He's on an expiring contract so no retained rights. I mean seems to me like the currently obviously more valuable asset got the larger return and the other one is named Taylor.

  10. LOL bro nobody actually thinks this. Of the three teams that were actually fighting it out for Taylor Hall, none of them offered a first round pick, and Hall used his NMC to go to Boston, so Buffalo had to take whatever Boston offered. It’s not complicated. If you were in the Bruins situation, why wouldn’t you lowball the everliving sh*t out of them? If he even scores 1 point they win this trade. 😂

  11. Look at the contracts tho. Bennet is a RFA After this year and hall is a UFA. Bennet is younger, Also hall is kinda bad and had a trash season so obviously his value is gonna be low. Kind of a dumb video man.
