Today, the Edmonton Oilers re-signed one of their up and coming stars Taylor Hall to a restricted free agent deal - Hall just finished his second season in the NHL. The Oilers decided not to wait as they have Hall locked up for the next eight seasons - Hall signed a seven year extension worth 42 Million dollars. The line on Taylor Hall reads (126 games 49 goals, 46 assists — 95 points). Hall was selected first over-all in the 2011 NHL draft.

Boston Bruins drafted Tyler Seguin number two in the 2011 NHL Entry Draft (thanks Phil Kessel). Unlike Hall who failed to finish either season he played in - due to injuries - on the flip side of the equation - Seguin has played a in 155 games, 40 goals, 49 assist for 89 points. Seguin also has a Stanley Cup ring to resume as he was a member on the 2011 Stanley Cup Championship team.

It will be interesting to see what kind of contract that Seguin will command when his time comes to sign a restricted free agent deal.
