Odds of Taylor Hall Moving on? Sources Weigh In....

Taylor Hall's agent Darren Ferris and New Jersey GM Ray Shero met yesterday in Calgary and mum's the word so far...

But that hasn't stopped a few sources I know who are close to the situation from weighing in...Since I am working on the Rumor Chart Launch, I asked my sources to give me the percentage of likeliness they see Taylor Hall staying in NJ...

Source #1...

"I don't think its more than 30%. Hall will test the market for sure...He has been a great soldier since the trade from Edmonton, but he is still angry about the lack of control he had when he was moved from a place he wanted to play. He has been waiting a long time to get some control..."

Source #2....

"I would say it 40% because of what he sees as a strong young group in NJ. There are some real positives to staying in NJ for Taylor, but the Devils will have to go way above and beyond to keep him from trying the marketplace...

Source #3...

"Hall really admired Tavares and the process that JT went through and I can't see Taylor not being able to find a better situation....Taylor is a Calgary kid and the Flames could be a tempting team for Hall. I'd say its about 25% he stays in NJ. But not unless he is the top paid player in hockey and even then I think he goes with his heart.

more to come...
