Hossa? What is going on?

Yes, we know... Hossa likes the free agent market.

We also know he likes playing for the Pens.

What we don't know is if he'll be playing for them next year.

What is up with this? He said it's not about the money - actually, he said something like if he just wanted more money he'd come back to the Thrashers. He really wants to play on a contender with direction, which is where he is now.

His agent is a known jerk... maybe the Pens don't want to deal with him? Or maybe he's just waiting to the first to see what else pops up as far as his future is concerned - maybe he wants to come back here now that we have a coach and had a decent draft?

Riiiiiiiiiiiiight. I wouldn't be surprised if the Pens went on and resigned him. Crosby & Malkin said that they both would take a bit of a cut to keep him there. I would like to see him hang around the Burgh after the great playoff run they had, really thanks a great deal to him.

I'll be keeping an eye on the Pensblog to see how this shakes down.
