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.
Oh, I don't want to trade him, not yet. He's an amazing talent to watch, the way Hossa's game has progressed every year has been impressive, he plays to his own skill and speed level much in the manner Jagr does now. Some talented forwards are exactly the opposite of that, like Roenick was.
