He's a fast 30 goal scorer at age 20, I think he deserves it.
Exactly. Hall is two years younger than Eberle and it's splitting hairs when deciding who is better. He will likely end up being the better player and captain of the Oilers. Keep in mind that while Eberle was winning CHL player of the year two years after being drafted, Hall was in the NHL and scoring at a 45 goal pace from November until his season ended.
As for Chicago. They have Toews(top 5 center), Kane(top 20 winger), Hossa(one of the best 2 way forwards), Keith/Seabrook(top 5 defensive pairing) and Sharp locked up long term. They still have respectable depth players too. They're basically a half decent goalie away from being a cup contender. They also have 10M in cap space to play with.
