I don't know about that. Maybe to some team trying to reach the cap floor. The low payroll teams are beginning to realize that their opportunity to compete is through prospect development.

But do you even want to trade Hossa?? Not a great idea. He'll retire with at least 4 years left on that deal no matter where he is playing. Even if Hawks trade him in a year or two they will still be saddled with a near-$4m cap hit for those 4 seasons after he retires. OUCH.
