Hossa signs 12-year deal with Hawks

The Chicago Blackhawks made a big splash today by signing unrestricted free agent Marian Hossa to a 12-year deal worth $5.2 million per season, according to TSN. The Slovak right-winger scored 40 goals last season for the rival Detroit Red Wings and he has played in the last two NHL Stanley Cup Finals.

@sigsegfalt was the first Chicagoan to tweet on the news, just seconds after tweets citing TSN confirmed it.

Here was some other initial reaction from Chicago Twitter users:

  1. jason
    sigsegfalt TSN is saying the Hossa/Hawks deal is done, and they are awaiting confirmation. #NHLFA

    julierubes [Nooooooooo] RT @TheFourthPeriod: talk from chicago saying hawks sign hossa... waiting on confirmation
  3. Matt Zuchowski
    mualumnus I'll take Marian Hossa in favor of Havlat-better player consistently (though Havlat was better last year)
  4. Blagica Bottigliero
    Blagica Blackhawks are signing Hossa? That's kinda funny
  5. Second City Hockey
    2ndCityHockey what a surprise.. the rumors of Hossa to Chicago being bunk.. might have been bunk
  6. uncouth
    uncouth13 Hossa WOULD be an upgrade over Havlat in every zone. Still not believing it...

The first Chicago thoughts once word came out that it was a 12-year deal were varied:

  1. Wendy Smith
    khabibulin39 Hossa for 12 years... does tallon not value his job?
  2. Michael C Angellotti
    Diavolo312 Hossa for 12 years? At least he is done whoring himself out. Hoping they can still hold on to Havlat somehow
  3. Chris Miranda
    Mirandaguat12 12 YEARS! I have complete faith in the Hawks, they know what they are doing, huge signing Hossa. Just want to know the rest of the puzzle.
