I guess they figured Hossa for 12 was better than Havlat for 8? I don't know what to think of this. They just upped D Bolland, got rid of Builin Wall and Havlat (frees up around $14M) and replaced Havlat with Hossa... They still have money for a bunch of 1 year deals, but Kane/Towes/Keith are all restricted free agents next year, and each make around $3m now? That will eat into the cap space quite a bit. Maybe this is the year?
