SJS Re-Sign F Joe Thornton to 1-Year/$8M Contract

I know $8M for a 38 year old just coming off an injury looks bad, maybe something in the $6M range would seem more reasonable. But he's only one year removed from an 82 point season. You wouldn't pay $8M for a PPG player?

Indeed. Still, $8M for a 38-year old has ugly optics.

Yes and no. If you're not up against the cap, then it really makes no difference.


The question is - what else were you going to do with that $8m if you didn't re-sign him? Sign a couple of third-liners? Might as well give it to him.
