Hossa has a cap hit of $5.275M that is really long, doesn't end until 2021, but he would no doubt be a gigantic addition. No idea what the asking price would be for Chicago, but don't be surprised to see a few guys at that kind of level available in the offseason.
He's 34 already and his contract ends when he's 42. About two years in we're going to wish we didn't have him and whatever we gave up we'll wish we had back. Similar to Viz, regardless of whether he reports or not; by next offseason we're going to wish we had that 2nd rounder back.
