Eberle is in the same boat. He'll get paid more than Hall unless he's willing to take the sacrificial pay cut. Which I doubt Meehan is going to be happy with.
These contracts are the forward looking ones that anticipate continued player development over the course of the contract.
THere's some give and take because the players are effectively overpayed for their RFA years, but they give up some UFA time to get more money sooner (which is worth more than the same amount of money later).
