    Coyotes should raise the players actual contracts to the rafters

    Why patch up Hossa when you can get Patches?

    They are but there is a loophole that you have to be under the cap on day one of the season before you LTIR anyone. It's problematic if you spend right up to the cap, or closer to the cap than the value of the contract you bury, which Chicago does.

    Got to wonder if they go for Faulk as well as Skinner out of Carolina. Also wonder if Hossa ever plays for Arizona.

    I am only painfully aware of this because it's what caused Jarmo to offer up Karlsson to Vegas as incentive to take Clarkson's deal on. That contract could have really hurt us when Bob, Werenski and Panarin come due for deals.

    I am sure that if Hossa doesn't pass the teams physical, they can cancell the trade?

    Devils Twitter was convinced he would resign once his contract was up.

    Love Henrique but the Devils don't make the playoffs last year without Vatanen.

    Um, Hossa is done, he won't be undergoing any physical and the trade is consummated.
