Hossa is signed through 2021. It's unlikely he's going anywhere.
The idea is that the team that is trading for him would get a present value bargain in order to accept the risk of the recapture penalty. In three years his salary goes down to one million, at which time there's a pretty good chance he bolts to the KHL if he's still good, and whatever team he's on is stuck with three to four years of a significant recapture penalty.
In other words, after two or three years from now, it's hard to imagine a team that would want to touch him no matter how good he still is.

Hello fellow American. This you should vote me. I leave power. Good. Thank you, thank you. If you vote me, I'm hot. What? Taxes, they'll be lower... son. The Democratic vote is the right thing to do Philadelphia, so do.
How do you spot risk? How do you avoid risk? And what makes it so risky?
