I'm starting to think the Hawks will buy him out not this summer, but next, especially if he runs into injury problems again.
Using the amnesty buy-out on Hossa this summer would be the perfect way to get that deal off the books. I don't see Rocky giving a guy $31m to go to the FA market and then reallocate that $5m/year on another player, however.

But that deal is going to kill us in a few years.
