That's insane. He settled for a one year deal?

Maybe the Pens should sign Jagr!

A one-year deal?

What in the?

Penguins fans not surprised he's gone, but for one year and to Detroit?

Guh.

Well, that was true the day they traded him. It would be true even if they won the cup. That said, Hossa was the best player on the ice in a lot of those playoffs games, so whatcha gonna do, ya know? He did was he was supposed to do but it didn't work...

I honestly do not get why he just went for a one-year deal. Granted there's a lot of money in that contract but it just reeks of Hossa being mercenary for another successful hockey team, again.

I am honestly surprised he didn't go to Tampa as that seems to be the place where all the Penguins FAs are going.

It's gone up periodically each year. It's a pretty weak cap that can easily be manipulated.
