There is a major difference between trading Gaudreau for Hall v. trading Gaudreau for a ton of assets and then signing Hall.

The first maneuver is idiotic, and the second maneuver is extremely risky and unlikely.

Either way, I just don't think the Flames can or should make the cap space to acquire Hall. The Flames might be able to add a top 6 winger, but there's almost no way they can afford a Hall-level player.

Why not sign Eric Haula if he's (eventually) healthy? He's a top 6 guy, probably wouldn't have a terrible contract, is decently young, and is a UFA this summer.
These types of options are more interesting to me.
