No one but the Rangers possibly would offer Hossa that kind of money, and they'd have to do some considerable maneuvering to make it happen. You think Detroit is going to shell out $8M+ for Hossa? I don't. I don't think Anaheim would do it either. I think both will offer about the same sorts of deal we would offer.

It's possible Chicago could make a big splash for him but I don't seem them overpaying either, really. They've been burned on that score before.
