Taylor Hall has now been a Boston Bruin for two and a half seasons. After being acquired from the Buffalo Sabres, in a trade that has heavily favoured the Bruins.

Don Sweeney resigned Taylor Hall to a 4-year deal, with a NMC valued at $24,000,000. Taylor Hall's salary is $7,000,000 and his cap hit is $6,000,000 for the 2022-23 season. His salary is comprised of $1,000,000 in signing bonuses and $6,000,000 in base salary. Hall, will be going into the second year of his contract.


The Bruins acquired Curtis Lazar — $800,000, and Taylor Hall ($4,000,000 retained - 50%) — $4,000,000. Sum: $4,800,000, change: +$3,200,000.
Giving up, Anders Bjork • $1,600,000
2021 2nd round pick (BOS - Alexander Kisakov) for sum: $1,600,000.

In just over two seasons with the Bruins, Taylor Hall, has played 158 games earning 111 points. 2021 was his best year since playing with New Jersey in 2017-18, when he put up a career high 93 points.

There was no real bad for the Bruins in this deal, getting Hall was an even cheaper price as the Sabres retained half. Now, Hall is playing extremely well. For the Sabres it was a different story.

The trade has definitely worked out for the Boston Bruins, acquiring Taylor Hall was one of the best moves for Boston at the time, and still is. As, Taylor Hall, has been one of the best Bruins forwards in the past few seasons.
