Wings to Sign Zetterberg4lyfe

Posted by Bob Biscigliano in , ,

According to a report, reported by ESPN.com, the Red Wings have agreed to a 12-year contract with Henrik Zetterberg. The contract will pay Zetterberg around $6 million a year for the next twelve years. Zetterberg will be 40 in twelve years, which pretty much guarantees Zetterberg will be a Red Wing4lyfe.

This is great news for the Red Wings. Not only because Zetterberg is the cats pajamas, but because it shows that the Wings are loyal to their young stars. This bodes well for any future young free agents who might consider coming to Detroit.

This is a pretty abnormal contract in terms of years. A couple years ago NY Islanders goalie signed a 15 year deal which was an NHL record. I didn't know long contracts like that existed until I heard the news, but then I did some research and saw that Magic Johnson signed a 25-year deal in 1981 and Coach K of Duke signed essentially a lifetime deal back in the day. I guess you could say they were in love and got married. I hope Zetterberg and Detroit never get a divorce.
