The Canadiens are going to have to pony up quite a bit to get him...I bet his price went up a little bit more because of his 26 points in the playoffs. The gamble made by the Pens almost worked out for them but instead, they fall two games short of a champion and they'll be without Hossa after this year in addition to the guys they had to give up to get him. No question that he is the most intriguing player to watch in the offseason.
I always thought that was a crock of ****. Hossa always took it full notch in the playoffs and played well, I had no doubts he'd do well on Pitt too. Im not saying that about you, just the overall perception of "Hossa has yet to prove it in the playoffs" crap.
