We gave up Halak at the time because Eller had SIX YEARS to go before Free Agency.

That is how it works.

Team gets 7 years of value, more or less, especially the first 4 years, the player gets the value afterwards.
1.325M is in the single 3rd round pick compensation for an offer sheet. That's a steal for Eller. He has some leverage.
