Another 6 year contract. That seems to be a pattern this offseason.

Hmm not bad for them. Getting two key players locked up with manageable contracts is a good idea.

As expected, I like the deal as he's the most proven out of all the young Oilers.

According to his development patterns he'll be scoring 200 per season in a couple years, so good for the Oilers to think ahead.

Wow, that's quite a chunk of change. I like Eberle, but $6 million isn't exactly a bargain. Fair deal nonetheless.

Expected Eberle to get a bit more, pretty good deal. Balances out the Hall deal if you ask me.

Not bad. 6 million's a lot if the salary cap dips, but whatever, that isn't too rough considering the years of his career they are getting.

Solid deal. Any team in the league would pay him that much without thinking twice.

Good job by Tambellini. Locking Hall and Eberle up was smart. These players will be a good deal at 6M/yr in only a couple of seasons.

Thanks for overpricing Jamie Benn, stupid Oilers. Isn't the whole concept of long term to lower salary? I'm not really seeing that here.

Great deal for EDM.....We all knew Eberle would ge equal to or more than Hall, good deal none the less....


Tavares 6 years at 5.5 gets better and better with each deal signed...

The Hall and Eberle contracts are based off of the Skinner contract.

Blame Carolina.

Not really when you're talking about a young forward. He's going to be 23-29 during this contract and giving two UFA years, why exactly would the term lower his cap hit?

Benn was going to get a large contract anyway, as he should.

Great deal for one of last year's top scorers. He should only continue to get better.

And for the guy who mentioned Benn...he isn't even nearly as good as Eberle.
