From Detroit Free Press:
Red Wings general manager Ken Holland announced today that the club has signed forward Johan Franzen to an 11-year contract. Additional terms of the deal were not disclosed.
The 11-year pact represents the second-longest deal in club history, just behind the 12-year contract signed by Henrik Zetterberg in January. They are hoping to do the same with forward Marian Hossa before he becomes a free agent this summer.

This guy is a star but I thought the age of insanely long contracts was over. Apparently not. Its believed that the cap hit will be around 4 million a year. Guys like playing in Detroit and year after year we see guys signing here because they know that in Detroit there is always a chance for a Cup run.
