Former Red Wings forward Marian Hossa has signed with the Chicago Blackhawks, inking a 12-year deal worth $62.8 million, for an average salary cap hit of $5.23 million.
The Wings were steadfast in their offer of 12 years at slightly more than $4 million per season.
Hossa's agent, Ritch Winter, is seeking a deal worth $6 million per season. The Red Wings, because of their limited salary cap space, can't afford to give him much more than $4 million per season.
EDIT: It seems the OP meant for that, but people are throwing around the 4 million figure as if Hossa wasn't offered that contract. How much would the Wings have had to lose to gain Hossa for 5.4 million?
