Hall is easily the better player. It was smart to lock him up now, before he breaks out. Signing Eberle now would be a giant mistake. Wait until after next season when his percentages regress and then you'll get a fair deal. If Eberle gets close to what Hall just got now, then the Oilers are making a big mistake.

I am 99.99% sure that account is fake, same with the Hall one. They only have 1 person picture on it, and it is the only picture they have uploaded.

The fact they are in discussions means that it's a foregone conclusion that a deal will be done this offseason. The Oilers are not going to risk pissing off Eberle by ending talks now and shelving it until later. The message that conveys would not sit well in that locker room considering Eberle is universally considered part of their core.

The Oilers have no choice but to go full steam ahead with the foundation that they've drafted. RNH will be getting his deal next offseason and we will have to see how Yakupov pans out once he steps onto NHL ice. They'll have their stars in place, it's up to Tambellini (or his successor, I don't think very highly of his ability) to round out the roster with the proper support pieces to contend for as long of a window as possible.

I agree with you big time, I'm sure Eberles agent is really pushing for a deal this year.

I found it curious that Halls agent actually approached the Oilers at this years entry draft to start the extension talks. You would think Halls camp would want to wait after next year and Eberles camp would REALLY want to sign an extension this offseason.

good post.

Why on earth would we sign him right up until he's UFA? A 4 year deal would be idiotic from the Oilers standpoint. No way they agree to that.

He and Hall are best friends. If Hall is committed to another 8 years here, why wouldn't Eberle look for something similar? Especially given that Eberle grew up an Oilers fan.

You need to watch more than 5 Oiler games a year.

They are different players and Hall makes room for Eberle on the ice but where Hall has the physical advantage, Eberle has the cerebral advantage plus better hands. Hall is NOT easily the better player.....

Well the .01% is actually right. I follow them both, and they aren't fake. Both have had mutliple pictures as well.

Ah are they? My bad, normally real people will have more than 1 photo in an album though. Eberle only has 1 picture in his profile picture.

I stand by Eberle being the best of Edmonton's young guns. They'd be smart to lock him up longterm at 6.

Here's hoping that Eberle signs the same contract. Very happy with this signing.

Not really IMO, he will be in our top 6 for a long time, has great skills, is well liked, and is kind of the glue that holds everything together IMO. He might end up being the 4th best of our young forwards, but even still he will be a great player for us. It's not about paying whoever is doing the best the most IMO, it is hopefully about these young men wanting to be a part of something special and getting paid well but not greatly overpaid to do it. Ideally we get all 4 locked up long term at the same price.

Best right now? Sure, he is after all the oldest by at least 2 years. Best long term? I don't think so.

You need to learn to watch critically.

Opposing teams are far more afraid of Hall than Eberle. Opposing defensemen have to hook, hold and trip Hall more because he is getting to the dangerous areas on the ice. Hall is also 2 years younger than Eberle and is primed for a Taveres-like breakout, only he'll post better numbers due to a better supporting cast than Tavares.

I can live with 6x6 but anything more is just asking for trouble when RNH and Yakupov come up for renewal.

Does anyone else thinks Eberle asks for 7 years $42,000,001 just to say he makes more. Seems like the kinda guy that would find that funny?

I can see him telling Hall that is what he's going to mess with him but I doubt the Oilers would play along. That would make a pretty good off season story though.

good post.
I imagine it had to do with the length of the deal. With rumors persisting that the NHL will look to limit contracts, getting a long term deal now before the new CBA is installed is likely paramount. For both teams and players.

I think Eberle has the best hands of them (at least the ones who've played) but Hall has the better physical tools and RNH has the most point potential. Calling any one of them flat out better than the other is ridiculous, they all bring something different but I'd sure hate to be picking one over the other, though Hall is the most impactful one on the ice so far. He's the guy they move around lines to spark the team not anyone else, that says a lot about how good he is regardless of who has more points on the season.

A recent poll on the Oiler board ranked the big four as 1) RNH 2) Hall 3) Eberle and 4) Yakupov in terms of importance to the club. Now this was far from unanimous, but it is exactly how I see it.

For me RNH has the potential to be truly elite. He has got a long way to go but his raw tools and the way he thinks the game are quite rare. He is a tremendous pp qb for someone his age, and being a center certainly counts for something.

Hall is the heart of the team. Injury potential aside he is the guy who drives the bus at ES even at this early stage of his career. He may well have the same sort of role on the current Oilers that Messier had on the 80`s version.

Eberle is extremely talented with tremendous hands and is as cool as ice. But he is still more of a complementary player while RNH and Hall really run the show. I don`t mean this as a shot agianst him. Jari Kurri was also a complementary player, but was still good easily enough to be in the HHOF and was one of the best all round hockey players I have had the pleasure to watch.

Yakupov is a wild card. He has a lot of Hall`s qualities, but like Eberle has a wicked shot. What tends to go unsaid is that he is also an excellent playmaker. But right now we don`t know how he will play out at the next level.

At this point my guess is that the plan would be to lock up Eberle, Hall and RNH with roughly the same deals. My guess is that if Yakupove pans out as expected we will see a similar treatment for him depending on what is possible under the new CBA. This is a good part of why the Hall signing is so important. It sets the bar for the other core players at a level that allows the team lots of flexibility going forward.

I see no reason why Eberle should accept anything less than what Hall got, hes proven more.

I'm guessing the same exact contract Hall got, to a T.
