The difference between a small market like Atlanta and a small/mid market like San Jose is that San Jose is a favorite to win the West every year.

They have arguably the best goaltender in the league, they have a incredibly talented young veteran group (27-29 year old range) and a great group of young players.

Second best team in the league through the regular season and they have so much cap space to play with it's not even funny.

After disappointing early exits in the second round for the last how many years, they will be doing what ever it takes to bring the Cup to San Jose.

Hossa on that team makes so much sense that it is ridiculous. By simply signing Hossa and re upping Campbell would make that team the instant favorite for the Cup every year for the foreseeable future.

They could add Hossa AND Campbell and still have enough space to add more guys like Ryder.
