To each their own, and I am not denying how talented Hossa is but to completely deplete our prospect pool like that makes it absolutely vital we win the cup before the Sedin era closes. Afterward, we get to embark on an Edmonton style rebuild, regardless of what happens. I would rather not spend most of the 2020 years watching my team lose every season.
He scored SEVEN goals last year.

Raymond scored 10 in 55 games.

Its a wash at best.
