I would not be suprise to see him sign for 8 to 8.5mil$ on a 6 to 8 years contract. I do believe we will go toe to toe vs any team to get him. Weither we will fall short or not is another question.

Let's face it, when Kovalev will leave in a year, we will need a replacement. Yes the brothers a good/great but we will need more than those two. With teams in the east with all the offensive power they have, we will need to have our own. Maybe Kovalev will stay a few more years but he won't be the same he is/was. Koivu is not getting younger or better. Hossa will ease the transition not to mention make us a cup contender starting next year. Yes a top big size center (lecavalier) is a dream but there is none this year, maybe next year maybe for a few more years.

If Hossa is willing to sign with us, we have to take our chance and take him.
Agreed. Hossa is one player I don't mind paying 7+ million. Because he is a pretty complete package (size, d-awarenesse, scoring, youth, etc..)
