Don Waddell confirmed that he had a meeting with Atlanta Thrasher Marian Hossa's agent Ritch Winter this week and that talks of a contract extension for the All-Star forward are progressing. Hossa is scheduled to become the NHL's premier free agent this summer, but Waddell is optimistic it won't get that far.

"It's progressing, and as long as we continue to have the kind of talks that we had, they're very upbeat and on target with where we're headed, then at some point here we'll be able to announce a deal," Waddell said.
