First call: How Marian Hossa could hurt the Penguins ... again
Hossa, who pulled the rug out from under the Penguins in contract negotiations back in the summer of 2008, is basically in retirement now. But his $5.25 million contract remained on the books in Chicago until it was traded to Arizona.
Many think the Hawks moved the money in an effort to create space to get Canadiens forward Max Pacioretty.
There quite a few who are also of the belief that the Penguins may be interested in trying to acquire Pacioretty.
It’s been a bit since “Hossa hate” has been drummed up in Pittsburgh. Maybe this will get that going again.
