Report: Panthers inquired about Hall
- The Florida Panthers inquired about the services of pending unrestricted free-agent forward Taylor Hall, according to TSN’s Pierre LeBrun.
- According to Patrick Johnston from the vancouver Journal, Panthers have offered Vincent Trocheck and a Boston area prospect for Hall.
- The Arizona Coyotes and Colorado Avalanche are also in the running for the former Hart Trophy winner, LeBrun added.
- Coyotes are still the frontrunners though.
- Hall has tallied 25 points in 30 games for the New Jersey Devils this season, who have the second-worst record in the NHL.
- The Panthers have just $517,494 in cap space, according to CapFriendly, so general manager Dale Tallon would have to get creative in order to accommodate Hall and his $6-million average annual value.
- The Devils can retain up to 50% of Hall’s salary, and defenseman Mark Pysyk ($2.73M AAV) could be a candidate to head the other way.
- Florida is in fifth place in the Atlantic Division with 35 points after a busy offseason that was geared toward making the club a Stanley Cup contender.
