Maybe in terms of league-wide averages, but none of Looch, Rask or Marchand are good comparables for Skinner in terms of their careers or where they're at, so I wouldn't expect it to directly impact them.

That's why it's a bone of contention in the CBA. Make 1st contracts longer, and you don't have 21 year olds making more than top6 forwards who have been in the league for 10 years.

That would be interesting. With Skinner at $5.2 and Tavares at $5.5, I'd say the range is pretty much set for Seguin and Hall. To really bump that range I'd think they'd have to put up Stamkos type numbers (i.e. 40+ goals / 90+ points). Is that what you see for Seggy this year?
