<div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>MitchMarnerElite </b></div><div>Thanks for the feedback. I don't agree with your take on Hall. Based on his statistics and on-ice results over a 3 season sample size, he's performed at the level of a top 5 LW in the game. His market value is around 10 million, so he'd be worth every penny. Here's a look at his stats since 2017/18:

If he gets less than that, it will be because of the league's financial situation as most teams can't afford to pay big salaries.</div></div>

I got your point. The problem is that he had a quite season offensively. 18 goals and 40 assists in 74 games isn't fancy numbers to worth 10M. Not even close. The season before he just played 33 games scoring just 11 goals in 33 games. That's not that good for a sniper like him. The point is that the GMs have "short memory" when they offer contracts. It means that what really matters to make them decide how much they'll offer is last season performances. And last season was a "just ok" season for Hall. I'd never give him more than 7M for 2 or 3 years, because he's getting injured recently and his offensive production declined. But I agree with you in one specif point: league financial situation will affect his contract and all the others as well. We'll see what's gonna happen in FA...
