Not to really draw out the comparison, but Kopitar had 3 years and put up one year in the 70 range before getting $6.8. Eberle is sort of the most proven individual amongst their youth and forwards now, even though he still hasn't done very much. They sort of shot themselves in the foot with Hall. By giving him $6 million long term for 50 points and being consistently injured, they've sort of set the lowbar at $6m and some years at least for all their young, talented forwards. RNH and Yakupov are all but guaranteed to push beyond that range.
