Fiddler got 1.8 for 3 years... I'd say its the going rate for a good fourth liner.

Live him and love any extension that keeps him here. Maybe overpaid but not by much for what he brings.

Good for Nate. I've always thought he was a hardworker, liked him since his NYI days.

A great 3rd to 4th line center. Glad the team locked him up for a while. Manages some pretty nice looking goals every so often as well.

this reminds me a lot of zack smith's 4yr 1.88M contract in ottawa. In fact, that was probably a comparable used in negotiations.

I think it's refreshing seeing third and fourth liners getting long contracts =) Good for him!

You clearly have no idea what Thompson provides the Lightning.

Not bad for someone Islander fans were calling "The worst player in the NHL" the day he was waived.

Does everything required of him and is a quality PK'er/defensive forward.

Glad to see him extended long-term.
