    No big loss. It was nice having his 40 goals, but someone in his place probably could have posted 25 goals.

    His lack of production in the Finals really hurt the Wings....and that's where it REALLY counts.

    Good riddance. Guy did nothing in the Finals. Seemed to be stymied by the Pittsburgh crowd.

    Re: Hossa joins Blackhawks

    How can anyone sign with any team in any league for 12 years?? At 30 years old, I guess he may be looking at management there too when he hangs up his skates.

    Sounds like an A-Rod's Yankee deal.

    Re: Hossa joins Blackhawks

    Dre, this is a way to get around salary cap constraints. He'll get his $60 mil, but the hit against the salary cap will only be $5 mil per year and I believe it will decrease at the back end (probably minimum pay at the last few years). That's what Red Wings have been doing with their players.
