The reason why it took so long for Joe Thornton's contract to be finalized was because his final dollar amount was tied to Patrick Marleau's signing decision.
Had Marleau agreed to sign with San Jose then Thornton would have taken less money to make everything work from a salary cap perspective. Ultimately though Marleau decided to sign with Toronto, so Thornton inked a one-year, $8 million contract with San Jose. "Obviously, I'm bummed that Patty's not coming back," Thornton said. "I think he's going to do great in Toronto. I think it's going be a good fit. Patty will be a Shark for life and he'll go down as the best Shark of all-time." Jul 3 - 10:46 AM
