Chicago Sun-Times

What's the big deal?

This flap over the terms of Marian Hossa's contract smacks of jealousy on the part of some other NHL teams. Should retirement have been discussed in the Hawks-Hossa negotations? Why not? That's part of signing a star player to a long-term deal. He won't have to change teams in the twi-light of his career. That's a plus to the player as well as the team and giving a front-loaded contract (like Hossa has) isn't a way to CIRCUMVENT the salary cap; it's a way to WORK with it.
