As for Hossa, it's not because 1 player did it that everyone would. If Hossa had suffered a significant injury in 2008-2009, he could very well have throw his next contract out of the window, which is 63.3M$...

Exception been taken out, you wont find many players interested in gambling a 7-10Millions bonus over potentially loosing 60M$.
