I'm sad he's not a Hab, but in the current NHL, Hossa is an anomaly. He's gained my respect.
Well he could be hitting two birds with the same rock. Playing with the puck moving D in detroit and guys like Datsyuk and Zetterberg he could have a great season and increase his value event if that's not his plan.

Shocker that he signed for just one year. And its really too bad it wasn't with us. Hossa's a 90-100 point guy who could easily get 40 goals. I thought for sure he was going to be looking at 100 million 7+ year contracts though.

At 7.4 for one year though? He would've been perfect for us. Nice pickup by the Wings.

True he is still a UFA next year, but he is risking his future earning with a severe injury.

The real reason he signed for one year.....

He loved the Hossa threads so much this year on the habs board... he's looking forward to reading them next year too.
