A brief excerpt from a story the Post-Gazette's Ray Fittipaldo filed for tomorrow:
Several media outlets have reported that the Penguins extended a contract offer of between $50-52 million over seven years to Marian Hossa but Hossa's agent Ritch Winter said those reports were completely off base.
"The newspaper and television reports generated so far are completely inaccurate," Winter said. "None of the information has come from the principals involved in the discussions. Ray Shero and I have not spoken with anyone about a contract, so I have no idea where the information is coming from. There is not even one basic piece of information from those reports that are true."
