They also forgot to tell Bowman to use a buyout on Hossa.
I can't believe that was a real suggestion on here.
EDIT: Stupid phone
I don't think anyone suggested they do this immediately. I think it was suggested that the Hawks leave all options on the table. Nobody knows what is going to happen between now and the summer of 2014.
Most of the talk was if Hossa suffered another concussion, or if he didn't return to the same player he was. No one wanted to buy him out if he was the same player with no further concussions/health problems.
