NHL and Hockey Rumors for Jan 28, 2014

The San Jose Sharks have re-signed both forwards Patrick Marleau and Joe Thornton to three-year contract extensions.  Marleau's is $6.66 million per year while Thornton's is $6.75 million.

The Detroit Red Wings have placed forward Michael Samuelsson on waivers.

The Calgary Flames have placed defenseman Shane O'Brien on waivers.

Vinny Prospal has changed his mind about a comeback and retired from hockey.

Marco Sturm has officially announced his retirement.

Both Edmonton Oilers GM Craig MacTavish and President Kevin Lowe were watching the Philadelphia Flyers - Boston Bruins game.  Brochu's take:  You would think the Oilers would start selling some of their assets, as they're headed for the 1st overall pick in the 2014 NHL draft.
