From Rob Rossi of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review:
Actually, Hossa probably made some choices for them.
The Penguins want to keep him. But they will not increase their offer, believed to be slightly more than $7 million annually over five years.
Hossa declined that proposal on June 21, presumably because he expects to command more on the open market. Indications are the Vancouver Canucks, Boston Bruins and possibly the Montreal Canadiens are willing to spend $8 million annually for his stellar two-way services.

Hossa is going to get some massive offers today, so I don’t expect him to return to Pittsburgh.
