Well Hossa is an elite winger & if he is willing to take a home town discount to stay with the Pens I can see Pittsburgh moving the likes of Staal if there isn't enough cap room. No sense having three good centermen & wingers to play with them. Hossa may very well sign for less than his market value to stay with this up& coming elite team. Malkin is already talking extension at or below Crosby's price. The last factor is what Fleury is going to want.
Crosby at nearly nine million. Then Malkin in or around $8.5 million.
Where does Hossa fit in there? Even if he did take a $6.5 million - which is ridiculous, the Penguins still can't afford to have three players making over $25 million.
