Kopecky's role on the cup team wasn't very big. His role was much larger the year after the cup (when the Hawks weren't that good).

As for Hossa. He is one of my favorite players on the team. That being said - signing him may have caused more problems than it solved. And I think this team was winning the cup with or without Marian Hossa. They were on the verge before he signed and had the best record in the NHL before he played his first game in the 09-10 season (remember he missed the first 2 months). Remember they were riding a 7 game winning streak when he played his first game of the season in San Jose.
