They weren't even going to pursue Hossa until Mario and others told ol Ray to go get somebody to make another line with Crosby. Boston are the most interested team, or in other words the team ready to pay what he wants, I've read that the Penguins are interested though.

There's a salary cap
-Staal and Malkin are coming out of their entry level contracts.
-Fleury is a RFA.
-Malone UFA

So, Crosby makes his 7 or so eventually. Fleury will demand upawards of 4-5. Malkin will want the 8-9 and Stall is getting towards the big bucks. Mike Peca made big time money, so Jordan Staal will earn at least 3.5 to 4. that's 22.2 (at least) on 4 players. Still not even considering Orpik, Sykora, Malone etc. Then Hossa will want 8 for sure. 30 million pucks, it won't work for a succesful team. Look at the mess in Tampa Bay.

I can go on for hours if we want to turn this into an off season thread. Think there's a reason to start a NHL thread or something? I'm serious, I'm game for talking hockey anywhere and anytime

Im predicting...Stall, Malkin, Fluery are staying.. Orpik and Malone are gone. Hossa is a toss up for me. He said he wants to be with a contending team, so he may stay.

My prediction went to Sh!t...

I love Ryan Malone, this dude's turned into a solid player. He's character in the room, plugs, plays in both ends and can put the puck in the net. I wouldn't mind him in the blue and white Something tells me those idiots will resign Sundin and bring in some flake like Demitra. "We're contending!!"

For the record, Sundin and Georges Laroque are my 2 favorite active players.

Sundin will be assassinated if he does not sign with the Leafs this year after they had wanted to trade him away for some prospects. Everything he's ever accomplished in his career will be overshadowed by this and I don't want that to happen, he needs to stay with the Leafs at least one more year. Besides, he still puts up some decent numbers for an old man.

The players I want to see still in a Pens uniform are; Malone, Scuderi lol, Letang, Talbot, Ruutu, old man Roberts, Laroque, Dupuis, Orpik, Malkin but I wouldn't lose sleep over it and MAF and Conky.

I just read that Hossa is willing to take a salary cut to remain with the team. Much respect.

Staal I'm not soo sure what he will be expecting from the Pens and I believe firmly that Malkin will be expecting alot of Benjamins. Malkin does not strike me as a loyal player, he left his team in Russia didn't he?

The coach Therrien (whom I call Michel Teryakby ) is up for a new contract after next season, I hope he is with them for along time also.

The thing I don't understand is how Detroit can have all those forwards, defence and goalies, that have superstars in each position and still have the same dominating team each and every year, and the Penguins have to change their roster because of their salary cap.

If Ryan Malone went to Toronto that would be the koolest thing. I think he is just what they need to light a fire under their ass and get some pucks in the net.

As always, my top favorite teams are Penguins, Stars and Leafs. This past season I was on board Columbus, Nashville and Washington and will continue to support all of them.
