I was reading in the Sports section how the Blackhawks signed four time All-star winger Marian Hossa to a 12 year deal worth 62.8 million dollar contract. I don't follow hockey at all so "The Bright One" will have to shed more light on this deal, but I was shocked any team would sign a player to a 12 year deal! Hossa is 30 years old and will be 42 when the contract ends. He is great now, but you never know how he will be in a few years, especially 12 years. Look at the Cubs giving Soriano a 8 year deal. A 62.8 million dollar contract isn't that big in some sports, but for Hockey that seems big. Is anyone else shocked by a 12 years contract?
