This is shocking to say the least….As you can see Elliotte Friedman is reporting that coveted free agent winger Taylor Hall is going to be signing with the Buffalo Sabres. I don’t want to say this is completely random but I would not have guessed this would be where he would choose.
The details are slowly starting to come out about how long and how much the deal will be for. The short term deal isn’t shocking as it’s clear the uncertainty of the future played a factor. Buffalo wants to keep their star center Jack Eichel happy and this is certainly a way to do that.
I love the signing for Buffalo as it puts them in a much better spot going forward. I love Eichel and Hall and him are going to be a real problem to play against and will be one of the more exciting duos to watch. Even with it being a short term deal, depending on how they perform this could be a long term solution to make Buffalo a dangerous team in the East once again.
