Honestly, it's a year longer and more money than I would have wanted without Thornton as a package deal, but I'm glad we signed him. Especially if it means we don't have to see Hyman with Matthews again. I mean, he HAS to have been signed to play 1LW, right?

Also, the Thornton contract isn't actually official yet. Let's do this buddy!

It's heavy on years/term like CTB says but it's money that figures to be spare until the big three extensions kick in so no real downside.

Patty Marleau, baby!

I agree, a year too long, but I'm sure they can handle what comes next, even if it means a buyout/trade in the final year.

As a 35+ contract, if he's bought out at any point there wouldn't be any cap benefit. And if he retires before his contract finishes his cap hit will still count.

Marleau hasn't missed a single game in 8 straight seasons.

He's missed 31 games total in his 19 year NHL career.

Marleau island is going to be a thing isn't it?

Marleau really seemed to want that 3rd year. I'm actually surprised he left San Jose...Should be interesting!

Marleau:  year 1) $8.5M 2) $6 mil. 3) $4.25

Heavily front loaded, so if the contract does need to be moved in the 3rd year that will make it a little easier.

Yup, July 2nd of year 3 and the team acquiring him only has 1.25 million to pay.

I think it's pretty safe to say that the deal doesn't get done without the 3rd year. So while we may prefer a 2 year deal, it's pretty likely the choice was 3 years or no Marleau.
