Hossa was good in that series but Crosby and Fleury were both far better. Far better.

i think it was pretty even between crosby and hossa but both were better than fleury. whilst he made a lot of big saves and had a couple of great games he also gave up a lot of weak goals at crucial times.

I disagree. I thought Hossa was their best player on the ice, by far. Fleury had one unbelievable game but he also let in some soft goals that really handcuffed his team. (The Zetterberg goal, for example). Crosby didn't do much to impress me except in game three. Plus, Cindy's defensive skills leave a lot to be desired. Hossa played very well both ways and it got to the point where I was looking to see if he was on the ice instead of whether Crosby or Malkin were on the ice because he scared me.

Wtf, he was only a rental. It's not like he was with the team since the start of his career. Jesus.

Plus, Pittsbursburgh couldn't beat us with Hossa, imagine US with Hossa. That's what he was thinking.

Man I think Crosby is rubbing off on Pens fans. Nothing but crying. Hossa was on the Pens for all of 5 minutes yet they act like he had been there for 10 years and somehow he was supposed to be loyal to them.

I spent some time browsing the Pens boards yesterday. While there were people that "understood" the revolving door that's been getting a lot of use at Mellon at late, there was also a heck of a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth!!!

i don't know, i can pretty easily understand why they're pissed ... they gave up quite a bit at the deadline to get hossa, obviously with the hopes of locking him up longterm, and then they trade malone's rights to open up cap space for hossa (and malkin) ... i'm sure at some point before all this they talked to hossa and he gave them the impression that he wanted to stay ... had he left for more $ that pittsburgh couldn't match then that's one thing, but it's pretty clear he came to detroit not for the money but because he'd rather play here ... so he did screw them over a bit ... but hey, i'm not complaining a bit laugh.gif
"The one thing I love about Datsyuk, and there is much to love, is that no other player is like him. And, at least in recent history, it's hard to think of any player who has really been like him. He is a unique freak of nature in how he stick checks and operates in tight quarters. It's amazing how he deceives people from a stand-still position or when he isn't moving very fast. He is hockey's David Blaine." -- John Buccigross

I couldn't take it anymore and had to email the writer (his email address is at the bottom of the article right after where he states that maybe Hossa will come back to them in 09). I mentioned about how all the great players in Detroit take less money so that they can stay in Detroit. I said that since they were so unselfish (unlike certain other players who have signed in Pitts) the Wings have money to spend on bringing in other great players who WANT to come to Detroit.

I also made note of his comment that maybe the Pens would knock the Wings off next June and how they weren't good enough this year and how they've been weakened significantly. They've lost some key players but also some role players that will affect them. (i was hoping Orpik wouldn't re-sign).

Man that TV reporter is a real ******. I think he made a great decision if he wants to win a cup. Yeah the west is a tougher division but the wins have four of the last eleven cups and the pens haven't won a cup since 92. I would have done the same thing.

I could point out that if Marian Hossa gets to Mr. Crosby's last-second rebound in Game 6 a split second quicker, or if Marian Hossa shows up at all for Games 1 and 2, that the Stanley Cup might today be in the possession of his employer as of the day before yesterday, but no.


Haha oh man that's got to hurt. If you can't beat us, join us.

I was on a Penguins board yesterday and went into the archives to read what they thought of Hossa when they acquired him. Basically everyone was somewhat upset at how much they gave up for "a guy who's most likely not going to resign at the end of the season". So they all originally felt that they wouldn't get him back yet now he's a traitor. I've always hated Pittsburgh as a sports city and now I hate them more. I'm SOOOOOO glad we got Hossa.

All the sour grapes are hilarious, because you know they'd be saying how great Hossa was for doing what he did had the situation been reversed.
It's amazing how much clarity comes when you care more about the Red Wings than any individual player.

If there's one thing I'm happy about is not only did our team stick it to the Syd-the-kid-stroking media, frustrating the Pens, but the irony is we now left them without one of their top 3 stars, joining a more well-rounded team.

And I'd hate to regurgitate the F-word, but if there's any recent memories I'd like to point to, is this Hossa deal has much the same taste for Pens fans as the Fedorov deal did to many of us Wings half a decade ago. Not just the fan response, but the media response as well.

I imagine if the Wings play any games in Mellon Arena, Hossa will get a similar welcome. biggrin.gif

TBH, I'll feel fine. The guy took a massive paycut, and risked long-term security because he needs to win a Cup. I admire someone that does what he just did, if even only for a year. Sure, I'd love to have him on the Wings long-term, but I'm also realistic.

Mark this quote if you want. If the Wings win the Cup and he moves on, I'll be the first to thank him and wish him the best of luck.

I loved reading that as much as I enjoyed watching red faced ray shero doing a press conference yesterday.

Shero kept saying 'we are doing great' 'losing marian was not a big deal' but each time he said that he was about to burst.

Agreed. He signed here for 1 year. He owes us nothing mre than 1 season's worth of hard play, and determination to win a cup next year. He took a large pay cut to come here and took less than our Captain (albeit not much) to show he knows his real place on this team. To me that's showing he's trying to be a team player for us. If he goes somewhere else next year so be it, thanks for coming out. If he were to re-sign, then great.
