"I'm disappointed that I'm not going to be able to see that through.
But I'm excited that I'm going to be able to play for a team that wants me.
In saying that, I'm excited for New Jersey and I'm excited for the chance that's in front of me now." Hall was the cornerstone of the Oilers' rebuild after making it to Game 7 of the 2006 Stanley Cup Final and the first of four No.
But he has the requisite skill set, he has the passion, he has the size, he has the skill, so it's something that I believe in this player and he's going to really help us." NHL.com is the official web site of the National Hockey League.
