Hossa signed to win in Detroit, that's the only recent definitive case of a player signing to win. Don't think Suter + Parise took discounts to play in Minnesota, and I don't think they did sign in Minnesota intending to win right away either.
Not right away no, but there was alot of talk after that they were talked in depth about minnesottas system and how they can surround those two with strong prospects.
ANA doesnt suck at all, but I dont think their system is on par with MINs. It gives those two a long term shot to win IMO.
I think winning is more important than you give credit. These guys are pro athletes.
