I was listening to 97.1 FM The Ticket and they said that Red Wings are going to resign Hossa for 7 years after the finals are complete.

Ken Holland has said that he doesn't talk about contracts during the playoffs.

Forgive me if I'm skeptical until it's official (or at least until the playoffs are over).

Sweet. Sounds like a Franzen type deal.

I'll take that for a grain of salt until it's officially announced though.

I really want to believe this, but without solid proof I cant.
Not accusing you of anything though, I promise.

I'd be okay with losing all of those guys but Flip.

This is Sammy's last series as a Wing, there's no doubt about it. If they keep Hossa, there's a good chance Hudler will be gone as well depending on how the numbers work out. Chelios is obviously gone as well, but he doesn't make very much.

I'd be careful with stuff like this. All I heard last summer was that Hossa was going to resign in Pittsburgh. Basically it was just the media here trying to get the story first whether they knew it for a fact or not.

EDIT - if this is TRUE... I still don't see how this works, we're gonna REALLY cap ourselves out if it happens... Kenny must know someone is retiring that's gonna open up some books *cough* Holmstrom *cough*

bye bye Huds, I'll miss you the most dontgetit.gif

i still don't know what to think about this. Awesome on one hand. Iffy on the other. If we get him what is the cost? IMO, losing huddles, flip, sammy, conks just isn't worth it. I like the team the way it is/has been for the last few years.


What happens when we tie all of our money in these star players and hit a rut?

I second that. Love Hudler.

Hossa said that he wants to stay here though Feburary, I believe that for this to work, maybe Draper, Maltby could be gone. Starters next year could be Helm, Sammy Lenio and others that have come up this season for this this happen

this is the only way I see it possible - Holstrom and Matby retire and Hossa takes 4.3 or less a year to stay, then we trade Meech.....

Don't get your hopes up. The STANLEY CUP FINAL is the main focus right now.

But I still think they have to wait for the official cap number.

A. Drapes is not going to retire - he WILL finish his contract
B. why don't you people get that his contract was signed after 35???? It would still count against the cap - all the more reason we DON'T want him to retire, then we'd be down a body and STILL have the cap hit.... no thanks

There's a difference, though. In Pittsburgh, they had a lot of players to sign and a lot of money to do so - Hossa's agent tried to help himself to a significant share of the pie. Here, there is no pie. There's an inflexible ceiling. Ken Holland is significantly more experienced than Ray Shero, and Hossa sounds like he REALLY wants to stay, rather than saying he'd "like" to stay in Pittsburgh.
