-According to Pierre LeBrun, Hossa will get $7.9 million until 2015-16, and you know what that means?
Brad Richards with his $7.8 million a year is only the fourth highest player in the NHL now! Yay! Now my favorite Star won’t have to take so much heat for being paid so much now, because, honestly, I don’t think Hossa is worth that kind of money. He’s a good player, yes, but he doesn’t strike me as a difference-maker. Besides, who hasn’t seen the tragic comedy that’s Marian Hossa’s recent career? ‘Nuff said.
