It has the possibility to be a great value deal in 2-3 years. That deal is important to Edmonton for a number of reasons, one being that they are showing their young players a willingness to pay them. There's risk for both sides in this deal. Hall could blow up and become a 90 point player in which case that's a very good value. He could also end up a 50-65 point scorer either due to injuries or just not reaching his full potential in which case he'd be overpaid.

I also think what they're trying to do is set forth a reasonable annual salary that they could pay each of their young studs in the future - a sort of New Jersey Devils type of situation.
