He should make less then both Eberle and Hall, unless he takes a dramatic step forward next year. I think 5M for 6 years after seeing what' he's shown so far. Yak is on the first year of his deal and hasn't been given the opportunity the other 1st had so I'll wait until the end of next season before judging him.
Call it 'drinking the kool-aid' but his defensive game and puck-retrieval at 19 is better than most NHL centres at 30.
He's a textbook case of the sophomore jinx, but he still manages to be a threat in the offensive zone each game. He's not a guy who'll take a game over like Hall, but he's a stabilizing presence on that line and an elite playmaker. He definitely fits the bill.
EDIT: Not that I'd necessarily disagree with paying him less....
