Kukla's Korner Hockey

Marian Hossa is ready to go to war with the Senators to get what he wants. Hossa told the Sun yesterday he turned down a three-year deal -- sources say it was worth $11.5 million (all figures US) -- from the Senators last week. If he's going to sign a long-term contract with Ottawa, he wants close to the $21 million over three years that Jarome Iginla got from Calgary. Instead of settling on a deal, Hossa will likely file for arbitration -- along with teammate Martin Havlat -- at today's 5 p.m. deadline, accept a one-year contract from an arbitrator and then shop himself around as an unrestricted free agent next summer.
