Hossa has four years at the end of the deal where he gets paid $1m. Highly doubt he's playing in any of those seasons. You can't trade a retired player, and even the teams who barely reach the cap floor aren't going to trade for 5 years of a player who is going to be retired in 4 of them. If you hold on to him too long you could be stuck with that cap hit.
Nope we don't. Only contracts that were signed at the time of the player being 35 or older when the contract went into effect. Hossa can retire at any time and no cap hit for the Hawks.
