CHICAGO (AP) -- The Chicago Blackhawks are dipping deep into the NHL free-agent market by signing star forward Marian Hossa away from the Detroit Red Wings with a 12-year contract.

Hossa will help them, but 12 years is a long time. It will be a good short term signing for them, but I imagine will bite them 4-5 years down the line.

Nice signing.

The stretched out deal keeps the cap hit decent, although the last half of that deal probably will be ugly.

Also, it all but eliminates the chances of the Blackhawks winning a Stanley Cup title for the next 12 years.

I'd be curious to see the fine point details of the contract.

Pretty hilarious though.

Too bad the Blackhawks are now going to finish in second place for the next decade.

The Hawks will win at some point but given Hossa's history it will be when they trade him and beat his new team in the Stanley Cup Finals.
