We don't know the exact wording of the new CBA yet, but if the Owner's included the clause about current contracts of 7+ years counting against the cap even if the player retires then Hossa becomes arguably the most logical buyout. Remember Hossa will be 34 by the time this season starts and still has 9 years left on his contract (and only 4 of them at his current actual salary). Does anyone really believe he will keep playing when he is 37 and actual salary gets cut in half?
