The Chicago Blackhawks have signed star winger Marian Hossa to a 12-year deal.
Sources tell ESPN.com the deal is worth an average of $5.2 million a year.
Hossa had 40 goals and 31 assists for the Western Conference champion Detroit Red Wings last season, but was held without a goal in the Stanley Cup finals. In 775 career games he has 339 goals and 380 assists.
12 years??? He's not winning a Cup in Chicago anytime soon.
Chicago has a really nice young nucleus with or without Hossa. They will be in cup contention for years to come. The length of the deal would be worrisome, if these type of deals were actually rare in hockey.
towes kane sharp hossa keith get a solid tendy and thats a pretty good team they will get experience in the upcoming years i will expect a cup out ofthose guys one day dont know how long they are signed fo though
