No arbitration rights, but still no where close to his value.

Only thing I can think of is the Sharks needing cap space to finish off the roster (5M to sign three players including Thornton) and a bit of an understanding that if he does them this favour, then they will work on his long-term deal to get it signed in January with a bit of a bonus to make up for this year.

Still huge risk if he gets injured or has a down year.

Anyways enjoy arbitration with that contract now Bennett. Might not even get an NHL contract if they use this as a comparable :P
