I expect Hall to get a little more than Skinner unfortunately but will be thrilled to have him locked up even at $6 mil/yr. He was on a ridiculous goal scoring pace after his very early season struggles, pure stud.
Yeah agree. Tavares was a steal and everyone knew it. Pretending Hall is in the same class (at least in the short/medium term) is wild speculation and probably very foolish based on injuries alone, not to mention clearly inferior offensive production, skillset and upside.
