Latest on Taylor Hall Trade from Buffalo Sabres

The Buffalo Sabres continue to receive calls from teams around the league regarding what it will take to get Taylor Hall out of Buffalo and according to several reports it's at least a first-round pick.

Sabres general manager Kevyn Adams is in his first season with Buffalo and will need to get back some decent value for Hall considering how things have turned sour for the Sabres. Receiving anything less than a first-round pick will be deemed a failure for the Sabres, even with Hall only have two goals this season.

Expect to see any deal go right down to the deadline on April 12th as teams across the league don't have a ton of money to spend and will want to save themselves as much money as possible before acquiring Hall and the rest of his $8 million cap hit.

The Sabres have reportedly received calls from the St Louis Blues, Edmonton Oilers, Pittsburgh Penguins, Chicago Blackhawks, Toronto Maple Leafs and New York Islanders. Sounds like Adams is expecting some final offers to trickle in this weekend.

As for Hall he's admitted he's open to a trade and will be willing to listen to potential suitors as he'll consider waiving his no-trade clause. Let's hope for Sabres fans they receive back some decent value for Hall and can hit the reset button once again heading into next season.
