Even RNH, not sure how you look into a 5+ year deal with him unless he gets 80 points next year. We signed Hall and Eberle last summer, in hindsight I really don't know that we saved anything by signing them early.
True, the Oilers could hold firm on RNH on his next contract. I could see a short term two year lower value contract, but that can't continue indefinitely. Eventually top notch players like RNH and Yak will get paid, and it will probably be during the same lifespan as Eberle and Hall's $6 million contracts.
