It's a valid hypothetical example. In general though many RFAs around the league did acceptably on their 2nd contracts, six years, six million per was common.
Yes they did, I personally don't see Hall as being worth 6 mil per. Career high of 53 points. Sure, shortened seasons and he's got potential but can you justify 6 per for 7 years as reasonable? The best part is it wasn't even an RFA contract, it was an extension during the ELC. That's brutal but it's somewhat justified because the market suggests paying for potential is normal.

I want to try that at my job, hey I just started but in 3-4 years I'll be good, how about paying me a senior salary? Ya ya, hockey players are special and best at what they do, I get it and not denying it, but 6 mil for 7 years is still in excess IMO.
