And so it begins.

The Boston Bruins have traded Taylor Hall and the rights to Nick Foligno to the Chicago Blackhawks for the rights to Ian Mitchell and Alec Regula.

The return doesn’t matter much to me, because what this sets up is the possibility to re-sign Tyler Bertuzzi before free agency. The complete lack of retention by Sweeney and co. is a big win on that front.
