If you hate the Brian Campbell contract, just wait til you get a load of this bad boy. According to Pierre LeBrun of ESPN.com, the Blackhawks have agreed to a 12 year deal with an average of $5.2 million per year with Marian Hossa. That would make Hossa a Hawk until the ripe age of 42 years old- assuming he honors all of this contract which seems highly unlikely at this point.
As if raiding Hossa from the Red Wings cabinet wasn’t enough, the Hawks also snagged center Tomas Kopecky.
Much more later, obviously.
