Hossa the Honorable to become unrestricted free agent

I use the word honorable sarcastically. On June 7, Hossa was quoted as saying:
"If I wanted to make a couple more dollars, I would probably just re-sign with Atlanta," said Hossa. "But I'm glad Pittsburgh got me here. This was a fun journey for myself, and a great experience. I hope I can stick with a great team like this. ...
There's always a limit, but I'd rather take a little less and play on a good team, definitely."
OK, so define "limit", Marian.
Pens GM Shero has said today that talks between the 2 parties have broken off. Hossa, who made $6 million last season, was acquired at a steep price by Pittsburgh not just financially. They gave up Colby Armstrong, Eric Christensen, prospect Angelo Esposito and a first-round draft pick (Daultan Leveille) to the Atlanta Thrashers. All of that to boost their chances at a Cup and hopefully sign this idiot long-term.
Shero still believes he has a chance to sign Hossa after July 1, but I really doubt that. Some foolish club is going to give Hossa what he wants.

I just wonder how far apart the 2 parties were, and how much of a douchebag Hossa really is. Never been a big fan of his.

What had really inspired me to hack Hossa is this post by Pat Lackey at The Fanhouse right after Hossa uttered those lies.
