Should the Avalanche go all-in on a Taylor Hall trade?

As the New Jersey Devils flounder near the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings, it is becoming more apparent that it’s only a matter of time before Taylor Hall is traded to a contender. A pending unrestricted free agent this summer, Hall’s name has been in the rumor mill as contract talks between himself and the team have stalled. At this point, an extension seems highly unlikely making Hall the big catch at this year’s NHL trade deadline.

On Hockey Night in Canada this week, Chris Johnston mentioned that the trade market for Hall is beginning to heat up as a number of teams feel it would be beneficial to work out a deal well in advance of the trade deadline.
