from David Pollak of Working the Corners,
That 12-year contract extension that Detroit gave Henrik Zetterbeg today isn’t the kind of job security that Joe Thornton lusts after. In fact, when it comes to term of contract, Thornton said he sees one year or three years as the ideal length. Thornton has another season after this one on his current three-year deal, and if he decides he wants to finish his career in San Jose, he said he’d want it to be in a series of three-year deals, not one gigantic extension.
“Three years is a long time when you think about it,” Thornton said. “A lot can change in three years so why put yourself in for such a long term when three is enough for me.”
Still, Thornton liked the 12-year, $72 million deal.
