Now, I have no reason to doubt the truthfulness of this issue or the seriousness of this condition, however the conspiracy theorist in me asks if this is really a retirement in disguise?  The Blackhawks gave Hossa a 12 year, $63M contract in 2009, which means that he's under contract through the 2020-21 season with an annual cap hit of $5.275M  He's currently 38 years old and would be 41 when this contract expires.  The Blackhawks are currently $2.5M over the salary cap which was increased $2M from $73M to $75M (if it had stayed the same they'd be $4.5M over!).

Now with this medical condition they can put Hossa on LTIR, which also means that his cap hit will not count against the team.  If he had retired, it would have.  Hmmmmm.....:whistling:

The same thing ended Tom Reid's career. Blackhawks said they were going to move a core player.

there must be some reason why every team that has had Evander Kane has traded Evander Kane.

Strome traded to the Oilers for Eberle.

A player that Vegas could have flipped.

Doing some reading, I believe there is a real problem with Hossa.
What he has was common in the 1970s NHL and as someone said, it ended Tom Reid's career. 

All that said, the Blackhawks lost a dependable (missed 46 games in last six seasons) top end two-way forward.

This site says they are $1.6M over the cap; however, put Hossa on LTIR and they flop to being about $3.5M under the cap, but needing a dependable veteran two-way player who can be top six and kill penalties.

What's this I hear that ARI cut loose Shane Doan. And I heard Doan yesterday saying he'd like one more kick at the Cup. And he and Jon Toews are good friends ... hmmm ...

I'm on the fence about this.

#NHL discussed idea of a minor penalty resulting from a failed offside coach's challenge. Team would not lose timeout, but get 2 min pen.

The only thing I don't like is how the middle stripe is only on one side. Penn State did the same thing with their grey jersey that would have been better with the stripe completely around the jersey.

These Adidas jerseys just seem lazy to me.

I actually like that it doesn't go all the way around.  The contrast of the stripe and the Wild logo workd on the front.  Wht the stripe and the numbers on the back being the same color, it wouldn't look good at all.  Of all the NHL jerseys, the Wild definitely made the most drastic change.  And it looks awesome!

Taking the white stripe all the way around would make the numbers on the back nearly impossible to read.

Move that damn team to Quebec City or Seattle, blow it up, and start from scratch.  Just get it done.

My buddy is a long-time season ticket holder and HATES this look.  I almost love it.  the collar sucks and the white stripe in the middle should go all the way around the back.  If those things were fixed (bring back the old school lace-ups), this thing would be :love::love::love:.
