SAN JOSE -- San Jose Sharks general manager Doug Wilson has negotiated hundreds of NHL contracts during his front-office career, but he experienced a first when he began discussing new deals for forwards Joe Thornton and Patrick Marleau.

"Both players said one of the priorities was that they'd really only come back if the other one was coming back," Wilson said Friday. "So that created a unique dynamic in the negotiations because it was two individual negotiations but it was contingent to them knowing that we're a better team with both of them instead of just one.

"All I can say is, that tells you the respect between the two players. They both said, 'Well, we'll do this, but the other guy's coming back, correct?' That was really an important part of this process."
