Rumored Destination For Taylor Hall Emerges!

The Nashville Predators were busy on Wednesday as the team made a trade with the Minnesota Wild and decided to buy out the contracts of Kyle Turris and Steven Santini. Turns out they have one thing in mind, free up some cash for Taylor Hall.

Predators GM, David Poile mentioned to the media the team does not have any financial constraints and he's willing to spend up to the cap. Any deal for Hall would likely start in at least the $8's and perhaps even the $9's, and the Preds' currently sit with roughly $17 million in cap space. 

While Hall has been heavily rumored to land with the Calgary Flames, it appears the #2 favorite team would be Nashville, all because of their new coach, John Hynes. 

Hynes and Hall were together in New Jersey, the year that Hall went on to win the Hart trophy. Hall has praised Hynes multiple times and called him the best coach he's ever played for.

We know that all Hall wants to do is have a chance to win the Cup, he's not after the bag, so a team like Nashville could be the perfect place. A solid hockey market, a strong team who consistently makes the playoffs, and with the addition of Hall, Nashville could turn into one of the favorites in the west.

Taylor Hall could be on his way to Nashville on Friday, which would be music to the ears of his old, but new, head coach.
