Report: Taylor Hall looking to take pay cut to stay with the Bruins

Published June 11, 2021 at 12:50

We all remember Taylor Hall signing as a free agent with the Buffalo Sabres this past summer, agreeing to a one-year, $8 million deal. The man was definitely pursuing money, intending to do well this year and earn more the following year, wherever that might be. The Sabres, on the other hand, had a dismal season and were a huge seller at the trade deadline, thus Hall was traded to the Boston Bruins, where he had immediate success.

While he is insistent about wanting to return to Boston, he has stated that his objectives as a free agent have changed this time around, claiming that he will favour club fit over money when he enters unrestricted free agency for the second year in a row this summer.

During his postseason run, Hall made comments on a potential contract with the Bruins and this is what he told ESPN at the time:

«I don't even know what my worth is right now, honestly. I'm not worried about my contract right now, it's something we'll figure out in the summer. I have much bigger things to worry about as a player, as a teammate.»

Hall will have more time to focus on a deal now that the Bruins have been eliminated from the playoffs, and we'll see if the Bruins opt to bring him back.
