Didn't know they offered him a 7-year deal. Where the hell are they going to get the money? They just re-signed Franzen to an 11-year deal and re-upped Zetterberg for big money earlier in the season. They're still paying Datsyuk and Lidstrom a pretty penny, and I believe Filppula got an extension as well. If they end up signing Hossa, they will significantly weaken other areas, guaranteed. My guess is he ends up in Edmonton, and I wouldn't be shocked if the Hab-nots and, sadly for you, the Leafs come calling. There better not be any calls from Ray Shero - I'm with Crushzilla in that I don't want that piece of playoff underperforming garbage back. He just proved this year that last postseason was a fluke.
