seriously? a 22 yr old taylor hall who has scored over a point per game the past 100+ games isn't worth his money? guaranteed if the oilers had given him a bridge contract, by the time that contract was up he'd commanding between 7.5 to 8 mill a season. but as it sits they have him locked up until hes 27 years old i believe at 6 mil a year, which as it sits right now is market value for a player of his calibur. in 2-3 years from now that contract will be an absolute steal. it's amazing how clouded some people can become on individual players because of overall team suckage.

shultz at 3.5 a year for 4 years would be an acceptable deal i would think. i would possibly go up to 4 mil, but would not overly happy about doing so.
