Until it comes confirmed by TSN's Bobby Mac, I ain't believing it.

But if true, good for the Oilers, now with Hall and Skinner extended, I hope Chiarelli can get Seguin extended soon too.

Considering this is likely close to the deal Seguin will get, I hope Hall gets a longgg term deal. Somewhere around 6 years and 5.75-6.25 per.

Id hold off on Seguin tho, I wanna see how he handles his first offseason where hes the big man on campus.

I get slightly appalled every time one of these young guys makes more than Tavares.

When's he going to be the big man on campus with Bergeron, Chara, Lucic etc. still in place?

The Tavares contract is a ridiculous steal, everybody knew it at the time so i wouldn't expect these other top young players to get that type of steal.
I expect Hall to get a little more than Skinner unfortunately but will be thrilled to have him locked up even at $6 mil/yr. He was on a ridiculous goal scoring pace after his very early season struggles, pure stud.

Not trying to derail the thread or anything but if he gets 6x6 after 2 hortened seasons then what does Yakupov get if he doesnt have 2 shortened seasons?

Or Eberle after a PPG season?

They are going to be paying 4 guys over 6 mil on offense all on their second contracts. **** is going to get nuts.

After the deal Skinner just got theres no way Hall is taking less. Skinner (.73 ppg) has 20 more games with 12 more points (if you're just going by the numbers). Hall actually has a better ppg average.

Not saying he should make substantially more, but theres no reason Hall should take any less than Skinner.

This is Seguins first offseason where hes the leading scorer and best offensive player. I wanna see if he comes back in shape and bigger like last off season.

Report says they're close to one with Hall and also negotiating with Eberle.

Yeah agree. Tavares was a steal and everyone knew it. Pretending Hall is in the same class (at least in the short/medium term) is wild speculation and probably very foolish based on injuries alone, not to mention clearly inferior offensive production, skillset and upside.

Jordan Eberle .81 PPG/A over 2 seasons
Taylor Hall .75 PPG/A over 2 seasons
John Tavares .83 PPG/A over 3 seasons

I'm not sure why its so appaling

Tavares didnt take a major discount. At the time it was market value unless you can show me a lesser/equal player coming off of an ELC that was paid more. Skinner (.73 PPG/A) was just overpaid and now that will dictate what similar players are paid.

Clearly Tavares and Hall had a .75 PPG/A over their first two seasons. Is that speaking foolish enough for you?

Tavares missed a total of 3 games his first two seasons, Hall has missed 38.

They do have similar production, but health/injury concerns is definitely in Tavares' favor.
