I think Hossa will end up in San Jose.

They're over 10 mil under the cap as it is now.

With JR and other contracts coming off the books, AND the cap going up to about 56 next year...

Smaller market = less pressure.
Winning team = guaranteed playoff birth every year.
Warm weather year round.
Can get the contract he wants and not handicap his team from going out and adding more pieces.

Hossa makes so much sense for San Jose.

The only problem they would have is picking which of Hossa or Cheechoo gets to play with Thornton. And the other will play with Marleau.

Think Pittsburgh's PP was good this year? Imagine that PP? With Campbell on the point. Yikes.
