Per http://twitter.com/TheFourthPeriod

Wonder what kind of payout he got from the Hawks incompetence?

Sounds like he got a little bit of a raise.

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

Kind of shocking that this is, of course, now a perfectly reasonable amount for a #3 defenceman these days.

They can still sign Versteeg, and will. TSN reported earlier that they are close to a deal with him.

Yes they will, but something's got to change between now and October. Someone is going. Campbell? Good luck finding a sucker to take that laughable contract.

Looking at the numbers, I'd say Sopel is easily the odd-man out.

Well they are going to have to trade someone before camp ends right now, whatever Versteeg gets is gonna put them in that much more of a hole. They ARE n fact $562,000 OVER the cap right now! Not sure if they'll regret Hossa signing more than they'll regret giving Kopecky $1.2M a year!

Something tells me that Kopecky was part of the sales pitch to Hossa.

How are they getting away with this. It will be a small miracle to sign Versteeg and trade Cambell.
BINGO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmmmmmmmm, who's to say that wasn't the reason he left Detroit? Hossa was ok with the $4.5m but said Kopeky had to be signed too, well Holland tells Hossa he has no intentions of doing that so Hossa goes to where someone will take Kopecky as well...

...in an odd kinda way, if that were the case, I kinda respct Hossa for helping his life-long friend out. Maybe a promise made to each other or maybe Hossa promised Kopecky that he would take care of him...
