And all the big franchise players like Lecavalier, Malkin, Crosby, etc... are locked forever with their team. In short the only way we're gonna have a player of this quality, still in his prime is with Marian Hossa right now. I don't see any Habs players that will get near that level anywhere in our prospects, anywhere in our organisation.

So this is it. We don't get Hossa the Habs will never have a top player like that in this generation.
