It's hard not to feel good about Taylor Hall's fit with the Bruins


After going from Jersey to Arizona and then Buffalo, and with two just trips to the postseason in a career that began 11 years ago, the 29-year-old Hall was by all means desperate for normalcy .


And Boston’s locker room, led by Patrice Bergeron and with support from Brad Marchand and David Krejci — all players who learned under Zdeno Chara — provides that.


Ask any player on any team about the B’s and one of the first things they’ll bring up will be the togetherness of the Bruins’ locker room, and how that’s a huge part of their success.


Arriving to Boston with some confidence issues after posting some career-worsts (shooting percentage and plus-minus) in a miserable 37-game run with the Sabres, Hall by all means admitted that this start with the Black and Gold is just what the doctor ordered.


And Jake DeBrusk, an Edmonton native who admitted that Hall was one of his favorite players growing up, noted that bringing high energy and enthusiasm to the practice rink every day would be the easiest way to welcome Hall (and the other deadline additions) to the mix and get them adjusted to Boston’s style.
