The Wings have locked him up, reportedly for the next five years.
Question - if the deal is upwards of $5 million per year, as it's expected to be, is that too much for a guy who has yet to show any postseason leadership or ability? Isn't this similar to the Stars locking up Marty Turco to a long-term deal before seeing any playoff success out of him?
UPDATE: OK, it turns out the deal is for seven years at between six and seven million dollars per year. That's one hell of a commitment on the Wings' part.
