NHL Trade Rumors are going around that Taylor Hall would be open to a trade. He does have a full no-move clause but has said he would be willing to be traded to a contender.
NHL Analysts like Elliotte Friedman have stated that the Toronto Maple Leafs are looking to trade for a top-6 winger and Hall would fit great playing with John Tavares and William Nylander.
For a trade to happen, the Buffalo Sabres would have to retain 50% of Hall’s salary and the Leafs would have to move salary out to fit Hall under the Maple Leafs salary cap.
It is believed that the Leafs will trade for a top 6 forward to take a serious run at the Stanley Cup. The question is, will they target Taylor Hall, can they make the money work?
A Leaf trade will likely happen a few weeks before the April 12 NHL trade deadline and it will be interesting to see who the Leafs bring in and who they ship out for a trade to happen.
