Well, there goes that.

Surprise! Marian Hossa has signed a one-year, $7.4-million deal with the Detroit Red Wings, TSN reports. This, despite the Olympic-sized swimming pool packed to the brim with $100 bills that Edmonton was said to be offering.

Oiler fans, welcome back to Earth; you may recognize it as the planet where elite players take less money to skate with teams that win.

Except when we're the team that's winning, in which event elite players not only take the money and run, but actually demand trades to sunny California.

Earth is a complicated place.

I think it was more about the commitment than the money.

One year with Kelly Taylor might be more enticing than 9 years with Andrea Zuckerman, especially if Andrea doesn't 'put out'.

I like Earth, if for no other reason than the fact that on Earth, we don't fuck our salary structure six ways from Sunday until my (unconceived) children are in grade shcool.
