12 years/100 million?
NY Post says so, and not from the Islanders, but from us! I doubt that is the offer, they would probably split it to 6 years, 50 million. 8.3 cap hit per. This is my point, the Globe/Herald stories don't make sense.
The Bruins entire roster is basically signed. They could sign no one and still be fine. PC said he will likely sign someone today. Well, the Herald/Globe says the Bruins could be after 2nd tier guys and multiple of them. Why would you sign some secondary guys when your roster is full. You would then have to ship guys out. Why not sign Hossa and ship those guys out anyways. It also makes no sense that a guy they have coveted for a year, now available, they would let walk, and with next years weak crop as well, have no other options besides a trade, where they would likely have to deal Kessel, a guy they refused to for HOSSA! Then, in 2 years, we will have to start talking Savard, Bergy and Chara for new contracts. It doesn't make any sense to why they would let him go and not make a hard push for Hossa.
