    Sharks extend Marleau and Thornton for 3 years

    Real_ESPNLeBrun: Breaking news: San Jose Sharks have signed Patrick Marleau and Joe Thornton to 3-year extensions.
    Real_ESPNLeBrun: Marleau's 3-year deal is worth $6.66 M a year AAV; Thornton's deal is $6.75 M a year AAV.
    good deals for both of them imo and they ended up saving a bit of cap for next season as well

    Obvious hometown discounts. Kind of rooting for the Sharks this year to win it in the West (and the Cup if the Wings aren't in the finals). Good to see not every player is all about the money too.

    Beautiful signings. What's funny is both are around the level of Zach Parise, who is making 7.5M over 12 years. Add in that these new era contracts post lockout are supposed to pay higher on shorter contracts. I think SJ just has Dan Boyle left to sign.

    Yep, just Boyle I believe. They did an excellent job getting everyone signed, and to great deals for the most part to top it all off.

    ^^lol, that sig had me cracking up when I first saw it.

    I'm not really familiar with any hockey contracts, but based off of your guys' replies sounds like a good deal for the sharks. I think doug williams is a great gm, he's been making good moves year in and year out, balancing a win now mentality with a build for the future mentality.

    I do find it kinda weird that they are getting paid almost the same amount, Jumbo Joe brings way more to the table than Marleau.

    Hard to believe they only make slightly over a million more dollars than David Clarkson...

    I was secretly hoping for a Jumbo return to Boston

    I've wanted SJ to win a cup since about 08. A team that's been consistently good for that long, it'd be terrible if Joe retired without.a mug
