ChicagoNativeSon I agree with most of your points, but first off i doubt that the future CBA will make the cap go down. Also, the NHL was investigating those long term contracts and put a stop to them, but, I do think they may grandfather them in as it was signed before the new agreement. I still dont think its a bad contract because if hossa plays when hes in his upper 30's hes still capable of scoring 50-60 points when hes healthy. At that point he will be making 1 million a season. thats quite a bargain and a cap hit(if the CBA counts acctualy salary) for a 50-60 point player. The whole key here anyway is Hossa being healthy, because if this year he scores 35 goals and has 70+ points and plays in most of the games this whole conversation will be null. Look at what being in the finals did to the Hawks last year, then think Hossa not only did it three years in a row but did it on three different teams, new systems, new towns, moving etc. now that hes had a nice long offseason i really expect him to be healthy. cause he was really known before these last two years for being incredibly durable.
1 year, 9 months ago on Sharp's New Contract: What It Means For The Future
I think you are wrong about Hossa. Hes nowhere near Campbell in terms of contract bloating as his cap hit is actually less then Toews, Kane, Sharp, Keith, and Seabroook.(Capgeek.com) Plus at least hes performing unlike Campbell was. Hes nearly a point per game player and hes also the best player on the team right now and for the past two years. With the things he can do on the ice, its not practical or smart at all to move him. His influence on Kane and Sharp has been really noticed. People say that Kane doesnt play defense but since Hossa has come to town his backchecking has really rubbed off on Kaner. A few of his goals (against Calgary and Ottowa this year) have come as a direct result of a Kane steal or stick lift.
Anyway the point is, moving Hossa would not be a good move. The new CBa for the NHL might see the cap still rise and I believe theres gonna be about 6.5 Million coming off the books from the free agents that we signed to one year deals. That should leave plenty for a few of the prospects to join the team next year.
