Brodie Brazil to have some Sharks news for us in less than an hour; UPDATE = Devin Setoguchi extended for 3 years

UPDATE = Holy crap Devin Setoguchi got traded along with Charlie Coyle (top prospect) and a first round pick for Minnesota Wild defenseman Brent Burns and a second round pick.

CSN Bay Area's Brodie Brazil is dropping some San Jose Sharks news via Twitter in a little bit... stay tuned.

And the news is that Devin Setoguchi's contract was extended by 3 years, allegedly at 3 million per year. This is conjecture, but Seto's slow start to last season probably decreased the streaky winger's financial value; this is fine by me, as the Sharks need plenty of salary cap space to sign a top defenseman, among others.

From here on out, let's hope Seto's production doesn't imitate Jonathan Cheechoo's decline, as many have said in a gross oversimplification. He has indeed had two mediocre seasons after his breakout 2008-09 season, but if his surge at the end of the regular season and his hat trick in the playoffs are any indication, the extended contract is going to pay dividends.

Go Sharks
