Taylor Hall Heading Back to Boston

Taylor Hall is taking less money to stay with the Boston Bruins and let's be honest, can you really blame him? The expectation is that Hall and the Bruins have a deal in place for four years at roughly $6 million per season. Hall has already made over $52 million in his career before the age of 30, he's putting winning first and foremost for good. 

Hall admitted early on after joining the Bruins that he was having a ton of fun playing hockey again. Boston is a hell of a team with the former Hart Trophy winner on their second line. 

The Bruins are one of the best teams in the league because of the health of their finances. Hall is able to be signed for $6 million because David Pastrnak makes $6.6 million, Brad Marchand $6.1 million and Patrice Bergeron $6.8 million. It's like the Detroit Red Wings model from the 90's, 'you can't make more than him'. It's quite the negotiating tactic from Bruins general manager Don Sweeney, well played.
