Just reported on the Wings' official Twitter feed. No salary terms released yet.

Hope it's under $40M, but I wouldn't be upset with a 6M hit.

Very good news. I was worried about losing him.

I would, but I guess you can't say he doesn't deserve it given the salary of other players around the league.

I'm guessing around 5.25m.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

If Kenny locked him up for anything between $5-$6, I'll be ecstatic!
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

ya let's see what he got .. 7 years bit much, not liking these deals this late in his career. 5 years would have been enough.

This will also give us a good idea on how they're looking with their cap space going forward as well.

Glad to see Kronner rocking the winged wheel for 7 more years!

Awesome. It'll be interesting too see how much it is. He's capable of unbeliavable things but still he's scored over 40 points just once in his career. This contract starts when Kronwall is 31 years old.

Glad to have him locked up. 5-6 mil seems reasonable. Especially since when Lids retired he's going to be the number one guy. He's a great defenseman, but I do worry about these long-term contracts. But I imagine it drops off pretty steeply toward the tail end so it'll work out. He's got another 4 or 5 years in his prime, really.

He is only 30 years old (turning 31 in January). His new contract will begin next fall as he is 31 turning 32. So the contract will end in the year that he starts at 37 and ends at 38. Seven years is long but it's not exactly the same thing as these contacts that take players to 40+ years old

Much more than 5 million will be a bit disappointing, but with the money Ericcson got who knows

I'm stunned. That is just crazy seeing as the contract only takes him to 38 years old. He must be leaving some money on the table and setting an example for everyone else to follow.
