I'm a Wings fan but now live in Atlanta. I wish I could get more excited about Hossa being a Wing. I'm sure he'll be great playing with an organization with Detroit's great players and management but I have to tell you it's a little hard to swallow because he was INVISIBLE for the Thrashers last season up until the trade deadline was looming then suddenly he played his arse off. I can't fault the guy for wanting to play for a contender but he totally quit on his team until he needed to make himself look more valuable near the trade. I hope he's awesome for the Wings but he sure didn't help make the Thrashers ugly season any better. By the way, a few people have slammed Kovalchuk on this thread but he was the ENTIRE team last season. I saw some downright miserable games here last year (a lot of them actually- ugh) and he was the only one who came to play every night (aside from poor Kari Lehtonen who had no help whatsoever, God love him). Even when the team was obviously going to lose, Kovy battled to the end. He scored 52 goals on the miserable Thrashers fer cryin out loud so credit where credit is due. Hossa is talented alright but Kovalchuk has more heart and soul than that guy will ever have. Once his contract is up, I hope Detroit picks him up because he'd make an amazing Wing under Babcock!
