It's funny to see people call Hossa a pure goal-scorer. He has scored 24, 25 and 29 goals in his three seasons with the Blackhawks.
With the over-sized goalie equipment these days those goal totals are impressive. He scored 29 goals this year which put him 31st in the league for goals. He scored 24 and 25 goals the previous years but missed a lot of games, he didn't start his first season with the Blackhawks until December because he was recovering from a shoulder injury that required surgery incurred while playing for the Wings in the playoffs(Babcock insisted on giving him top line minutes despite the fact that he was obviouslu injured and ineffective). 24 goals over 57 games equated to 35 over 82. 25 goals over 65 games equates to 32 over 82. While it is true he is so much more than just a sniper, he has the tools to excel in that role if that is what is required of him as is evidenced by the 40 goals he scored for the Wings in 74 games
