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.
How is 6 million per year too much?

It's a reasonable estimate of how much value he'll bring to Edmonton in that time span.

Hall had 53 points in 61 games last year, with a high goals-to-assists ratio. Don't sell him short.
