Taylor Hall said he felt "slighted" by the trade that sent him from Edmonton to New jersey.

"I expressed my disappointment in what had happened," Hall said when asked about his conversation with Oilers GM Peter Chiarelli. "I don't want to sound like I'm not excited to join New Jersey because that's not the case. I'm a proud person and I do take this as an indictment of me as a hockey player. I don't think there's any other way to treat. It's safe to say that I'm a very motivated hockey player now." Hall was a teammate of Adam Henrique in junior hockey, so the duo will probably be reunited in New Jersey.

Cam Fowler was a bit surprised that he wasn't traded based on all the rumors he heard going into the NHL Draft.

"You hear your name tossed out there. I've heard that before even at recent trade deadlines, but this time with the position the Ducks are in and some of the salaries, it just seemed like it was pretty real," he said. "I was 100 percent prepared for something to happen and was honestly pretty surprised when it didn't. It's one of those things where I want to be prepared for it to happen, obviously I love playing in Anaheim and being a Duck, I feel like I have a great relationship with [GM] Bob [Murray]. I just know that his hands are tied a little bit with what he needs to do. I just have to sit and be patient and see what happens." It seems like he could be staying with the team now because Anaheim was seeking a top-10 pick for him and that didn't happen.

He recorded 36 goals and 64 points in 77 games last season and had just about every team ready to welcome him with open arms.

P.K. Subban has been shipped to the Nashville Predators for Shea Weber.

The Subban trade rumors have been swirling since Montreal's season ended because his no-movement clause kicks in on July 1. The Canadiens said they weren't shopping Subban, but getting Weber back in the deal changed their minds about standing pat. Subban had six goals and 51 points in 68 matches for Montreal last season.

Adam Larsson has been dealt to the Edmonton Oilers for Taylor Hall.

In 82 games last season, Larsson recorded three goals and 18 points, which was down from his personal best of 24 over 64 contests in 2014-15. Larsson was the fourth overall pick in 2011 and he hasn't developed his two-way game the way New Jersey hoped he would.

Taylor Hall has been traded to the New Jersey Devils in exchange for defenseman Adam Larsson.

Hall recorded 26 goals and 65 points in 82 games last season with Edmonton. The first overall pick in 2010 has 328 points in 381 career contests and now he has off to the Devils to inject some much-needed offense into that group.

Troy Brouwer has spoken to a few teams during the interview period prior to free agency.

Brouwer can test the unrestricted free agent market on Friday. He played well for the Blues in the playoffs with eight goals and 13 points in 20 games, so he has attracted plenty of interest.

Loui Eriksson and Andrew Ladd have spoken to the Nashville Predators prior to the start of free agency.

"Forward-wise, we're always looking to get a little bit better," Predators general manager David Poile said Tuesday. "That could be a trade, that could be a free agent, that could be a combination of both of those. We've had meetings and we've talked about a number of players."

He will earn $2 million in 2016-17 and 2017-18. Zucker was a disappointment last season when he posted 13 goals and 23 points in 71 games. More was expected from him after he tallied 21 markers in 51 appearances during the 2014-15 campaign.

Fedor Tyutin has been bought out of the final two years of his contract by the Columbus Blue Jackets.

"Fedor Tyutin is a pro in every sense of the word and has been an important player for the Columbus Blue Jackets for many years, but this decision is a result of the current depth on our blue line and to add some financial flexibility for our club moving forward," said GM Jarmo Kekalainen. "I want to thank Fedor for his many contributions and wish he, his wife, Sarah, and their family all the best moving forward." His buyout will save the Blue Jackets $3,291,667 in 2016-17. Tyutin is now an unrestricted free agent.
