Demitra's a bum compared to Jagr and Hossa. Don't even put his name in these conversations.

I don't buy that Jagr is just willing to be sloppy seconds to Hossa if this falls through. People that think he'd come here for only 6 when he's getting double the offer in Russia and Sundin is getting offered 10 million are high.

I'm sure he'd rather go back to Pittsburgh for a couple of years for 6 or 7 as opposed to come here. Jagr'd want Hossa money to come here too. But the term would be much less.

We strike while the iron is hot. Look at what Pittsburgh gave up just to have him for months? We could sign him now and not have to deal any players for him. I say do it. Hossa's only 29.

7 years-63 million=sold. My only worry is that he's going to take less than what he was offered here from Montreal or Pittsburgh and everyone will start the whole "no one wants to play in Edmonton" crap again.
