Ilya is King. And Hossa will come back as we saw today. But looks like Kozlov is happy with his son at the tennis court when sun is shining. Maybe he will come back when weather is getting worse
And Holik, who would pay him what he is getting. Ok, I am saying this not knowing what happens in the dressing room but I doubt he is not worth of all of this money but I hope he will show that I am wrong.
At this point of the season Oscar goes to ... Ilya. Henrik does have too good guys skating and helping with him.
The thing to look forward to the coming offseason is that we have many players with contracts coming off the books. Hossa, Holik, Rucchin, Dupuis (Why did we only re-sign him for one year? Should've been more), Boulton, McCarthy, and Hedberg are all UFAs at the end of this season. Sterling, Popovic and Lehtonen are the only RFA's. We currently have about $23.9M invested in 11 players for next season. If Hossa is re-signed, he'll end up with a raise. You can also expect raises for Lehtonen and Popovic, with a possibility of Sterling depending on if the new coach decides to use him.
