07:27 AM ET 07.31 | San Jose has now locked up center Joe Pavelski, making a clear commitment to a player the franchise views among its cornerstones. Four Sharks are now set to be unrestricted free agents after the 2013-14 season, including forwards Joe Thornton, 34, and Patrick Marleau, 33, and defenseman Dan Boyle, 37. Wilson said there have been talks with representatives of those three players, but did not offer any details. "Joe is 29 and the other players are a different age and have gone through that phase," Wilson said of Thornton, Marleau and Boyle. "Have we had discussions going forward? The answer is yes. But Joe is 29 and he's coming into his prime and for him to give up five years of unrestricted free agency and give us this type of contract is very important."

His birth certificate says he's 34 but, his agent claims he's only 29 and deserves that 15 year, NTC, Luongo like contract.
