We were highly interested in Hossa. Maybe you don't remember, but we came extremely close to landing him for Higgins+ just before the Pens swept the rug under our feet by offering Armstrong, Christensen and Esposito. It's not like we didn't try.

As for the other two, our cap situation just didn't allow us to be in the running for them. Nothing strange about that.
