Hossa’s Future

From Pierre LeBrun at Sportsnet.ca,

This could be a critical week in the future of star winger Marian Hossa with the Atlanta Thrashers. Sources tell Sportsnet.ca that if progress isn’t made in contract talks with the potential unrestricted free agent, the Thrashers could begin shopping him in earnest.

GM Don Waddell is slated to resume contract talks this week with Hossa’s agent Ritch Winter. The two haven’t talked contract in nearly a month. The Thrashers would still much prefer to keep Hossa but if the dialogue isn’t positive over the next 10 days, the NHL club will need to go to Plan B and put him on the market ahead of the Feb. 26 NHL trade deadline.

plus much more hockey talk from around the NHL
