Right now? Jeff Skinner contract looks good. Slightly less as skinner did it twice, seguin had 1 big year.
I don't think Seguin, Hall, Eberle deserve anymore than Tavares. All three of them have improved over their rookie seasons(where as Skinner did not). I don't see any of them being too difficult to re-sign for 5.5 - 5.75/6 years
Chierreli is good at negotiates so I doubt the 6-7 the op suggested is even a possibility. Also skinner had two years to show what he had, seguin only showed his star in the making side this season. I guess the cup games where he lifted the b's beyond Tampa might play a huge impact, but not so much he's gunna get 7
Tavares 5 years $5.5 million
Stamkos 5 years $7.5 million
No he doesn't deserve $7 million, even if him signing is a couple of years on from these.
In comparison to the Tavares contract, Skinner doesn't deserve his AAV either. That's like saying Giroux is only getting 3.75/season therefore all lesser players have that as a cap; you can't use a fantastic deal as a comparable for the rest of the league.
