When Taylor Hall was traded to the Devils, the hockey world went crazy. Hall is a former number 1 overall pick and chosen to be the centerpiece of the rebuild. We all felt great after the trade.
When PK Subban was traded to the Devils, the hockey world went crazy. Subban is a former Norris Trophy winner and his addition seems something like the beginning of the end of the rebuild. We all felt great after the trade.
Even after Hall won the Hart Trophy, I don’t think most of the hockey world took the Devils seriously. We also didn’t have Jack Hughes or a defense. With Subban wearing black and red, I think the hockey world has their eyes on us.
The trades for Hall and Subban were both big splashes, but is it fair to say Subban’s trade was a bigger splash due to his popularity and addition to the defense?
Thank you, Ray Shero!
