Hossa done?

Recommended Posts

^^^could the timing of Hossa announcing he is done playing for good be a step in his contract being dealt in the near future?  It would come without any expectations of him playing again, help an org get to the cap floor by 5 mil and only costing 1 mil in actual dollars.  The cap is going up and it’s going to make it more difficult/costly for some.  Hossa agrees to it to help the Hawks short term and then comes back in a coaching role.  

Win/win/win.

Too good to come true, IMO.

 

It could be, yes. Send a definitive message to the teams that need to get to the cap floor.

There's no doubt Hossa would agree and now, there's no doubt he'll be back in the organization. Definitely win/win, as long as we can move him without giving up a Schmaltz or other high sweetner, which Bowman has never really shown he's capable.

if someone is just trying to get to the floor, he should be able to move him without any sweetener or at least nothing more than a lower round pick or a lesser prospect.

if he is gonna be on LTIR, we can just keep him so we kinda have leverage.

Hoss in the interview with slovak media confirmed that he will not play anymore, is moving permanently to Slovakia due to his daughter starting school in September and regarding his plans for the future he confirmed that he had a speech with FO about a position in the organization but that has to wait since he still has 3 years left on his contract. And he does not know what will happen with that contract. He mentioned that it may be traded. 

So that implies that he would waive his NMC.

in actual interview Hoss has denied he's retiring, it was misunderstanding between him and media.It's logical bc everyone knows it would have bad consequences for the Hawks.

Yes -- it seems like he told the other interviewer he was all but retired, but he's clarifying (in this last interview) that he hasn't "officially" retired -- because as you say, it would hurt the Hawks.
