If that's the case, Hossa will not be bought out.
But how would they make sure that the player has a legit injury? Have them get lost into a dark alley where the "boys" would be waiting with a baseball bat? I don't think the league would take the teams word that the player just happened to be get a LTIR in their twilight years of their career.
