Is Hossa in play?

If Hossa is in play and available this summer, I think this is a trade Montreal really has to look at and consider.

Sure his contract is long, but the cap hit gets lower and lower and is not that bad considering in the short term as well. Cap can be controlled if Montreal can shift some elsewhere in other trades or demotions.

Hossa teamed with Cammarelli and Plekanec or another centre brought in would be ideal than that of bringing in Vinnie, St. Louis or UFA Marleau.

Hossa is on top of his game, and he is one of the best two way players in the league.

Gauthier needs to at least kick the tires on this one.

Hossa on your team is a guaranteed spot in the NHL Stanley Cup Finals too!!! () kind of

(CKAC Sports) - Hard to believe, but it is what announces Jim Kelley, columnist for Sports Illustrated.

"The Blackhawks will surely enjoy a summer full of celebrations, but it will also be pressure from the financial standpoint," said Kelley.

"There are contracts whose team will try to get rid of - those of Brian Campbell and Cristobal Huet come immediately to mind - but it will be difficult. Whoever has the best chance of not returning is Marian Hossa, a quality player who has lived through a succession of agreements by one year because he was trying to find a place in a club capable of winning the Cup ( mission accomplished). Expect that the Hawks are looking to exchange his rights as soon as the parade is over. "
