      Forum-specific Rules   07/11/2017

      These are board specific rules for the Trades and Rumors forum designed to provide organization and a better experience for everyone. Please review these rules before posting new threads. 
        THREAD ETIQUETTE   1. Please search for an existing thread before posting. This forum can be very fast moving, so it's understandable if redundant threads are inadvertently posted. In such a case, please use the report feature to request removal of redundant threads.    2. Provide a clearly identifiable topic title so that users can readily understand the content. The title should include any and all teams involved, as well as player names or other personnel involved as appropriate.   3. All trades, signings, rumors and other news MUST include a linkable source. Simply posting the name of the source is not enough. Effort should also be made to copy and paste the full article, or at the very least the relevant portion of text from the source to the first post of the thread. Moderators may remove low-quality threads in favour of high-quality threads. 

      Affixed to the front of your title should be a label that identifies the type of transaction that is taking place. For all trades use [TRADE]. For all signings use [SIGNING]. For all waiver-wire transactions use [WAIVERS]. For all rumours use [RUMOUR].
      For articles or news items that don't fit into the above categories, affix an appropriate label of your choice such as [NEWS], [ARTICLE] or [MISC].   4. When the status of a thread changes a new thread can be created. The new thread should reflect the change and help focus the discussion on current events. e.g. Someone may create a new thread when a rumor becomes a trades. The old thread will be locked by the moderating team.    5. Do not misrepresent the contents of your thread or post false trades or rumors. Trolling will result in a permanent suspension. 

      SOURCES   The following source types are considered INVALID. Any links to posts or threads on other message boards Any links to personal blogs Any news heard on the radio that does not have a link to an audio vault or podcast Any news seen on television that does not have a link to online video Any news spread by word of mouth
      Additionally, certain sources may be be blacklisted due to poor credentials, clear traffic-mongering etc. Blacklisted sources will be posted here. 
      Thank you for your co-operation and please PM the Administrator or Moderators if you have any questions, concerns or suggestions regarding this forum.

Oilers Re-Sign Hall -- 7 Years

Recommended Posts

Good for Hall and good for the Oilers. I would agree somewhere around 5 mil. The kid will be a great player if he keeps it up.

Edit: 6 mil is steep for an oft-injured forward. Needs to lay off the power forward style as he isnt big enough for it and move more for the finesse style.

Great signing with the new CBA potentially limiting long term contracts.

This kid's captain material, so good for them for locking him up long-term.

My guess is 7 years at $5.75 or even $6m per year cap-hit.

I'm going to guess 7 years @ 6.25 per. It seems high, but if NHL games have taught me anything, it's that you (over)pay for potential :P

Confirmed 7yrs, $6mil per.

Sweet deal for Hall, considering his swiftly-building 'bandaid boy' status.

If this is the bar for Eberle, then it's quite obvious that Tamby's going to have a real tough time keeping his core together. Obviously there will be trades. If he's smart about it, he can swiftly build a winner. We'll see.

Garth Snow signing Tavares to $5.5mil per looks sweeter by the day.

7 x 5.75M (My guess)

According to Hockeyy Insiderr, a week ago hall said no to 6 x 5.5M and yes, I believe him.

Hall wanted a longer term and AAV

Mind you when people sign contracts its not just based off the achievements they have made over the years but what they will bring to the team int he future...considering Hall is potentially looking like a superstar within the next few years...this contract doesn't seem to far off....

not going to lie though THe Sedins signing at 6.1 mil per year is such a steal and they are elite/top tier players...
