Rumor: Taylor Hall May Be Reuniting With Jordan Eberle on The Islanders

Ever since Islanders captain Anders Lee went down with an injury that will see him miss the remainder of his season, the Islanders find themselves making multiple calls around the league seeing how to best use the $7m in cap space they now find themselves with.

One rumor circulating right now is that the Buffalo Sabres are shopping Taylor Hall in an attempt to recoup some assets and it’s being said the Islanders have interest in Taylor Hall with some retained salary.

Arthur Staple, an Islanders writer for The Athletic sees Hall as a natural fit for the Islanders:

He’s not having a great year, with two goals and 16 points, but he’s the most skilled winger who could be on the market. He has a history with Jordan Eberle, and while he’s not a Lee-style player, few are. Hall also has an expiring contract and could be a pure rental, though a costly one — if the Islanders announce Lee is out long-term, no one’s going to run to help Lamoriello.

The Islanders may need to move quick if they wish to get this deal done as the bidding war for Hall has already started and could be a first come first serve situation.
