I never liked the long contract deals. But even then, we'd have an awful lot of money tied up in $31+year old forwards.

Still, I think it would be better from the Jurcos and Jarnkroks to learn from Hossa than Franzen.
Hossa is the superior player no question. The mistake was not giving him whatever he wanted. He took $63 million though, not 50.
