no he didnt .. i've watched the games and hossa almost looked invisible!! .. great players have to be even greater in the playoffs .. he seem to lack of every year !!

in playoffs the rosters are reduced .. better players get more ice time and they are expected to be better than the regular season


the stat sheets doesnt always tells the whole story ... not that his playoff stats are good ... but they still overates his performance

Even if Marian wasn't scoring, he was still in the goalie's face! He had consistent effort night in and night out, but he was getting shut down by either the other team's hot goalie or hot defense.

Even in that game seven versus the Devils, Hossa still wanted that tying goal. He never quit, in our end or the offensive end.

He showed up, and he still shows up to every game.

Very true, he showed up every game. Its not his fault he could take 7-10 shots a game and not score a goal. It got ridiculous at times.

I just wanted Brodeur to get kicked in the head or something so Hossa could score, is that too much to ask?

No, same with the Toronto goalies. I remember when Hossa caught the ultimate break and was left in alone in Game 6OT against TO and could not pot his chance.

I almost started ing there. He put his heart into this team.

I don't understand why so many people are trying to discredit what he did for Ottawa. If it wasn't for Hossa, we wouldn't be where we are today, or would have ever gotten the President's Trophy or made it to that game 7. He was the backbone of this team for so long, and as he matured so did our team.

In all seriousness, is Volchenkov a player you'd be happy if the Sens gave a long-term contract to (at market rates). He's a player that will play through any injury he possibly can, but, even he has his limits. With the amount of physical contact that he's involved with on a game-in, game-out basis, he is a high injury risk player.

Personally, I'd consider it, only if I felt that we were getting him for a bit of a discount. I like the idea of rewarding a player of his style, even if there are risks, as it shows the rest of the team how much that type of dedication is valued. But, at a price of say $3-3.5M per year (which is what he'll likely be worth at least by the time he's a UFA), I'd be hesitant.

I agree here. There are a lot of guys who have proven nothing on this team, and have been sighed to big contracts. If playoff performance is what matters(and it does to me), a lot of players should not have been signed. I'd give him 3 yrs. I wouldn't sign anybody under this cap system for longer.

a 6 million per year contract for 3 years .. sorry hossa you were way ahead of yourself ...

getting back heatley is definitely a + in my books .. he certainly has proven it aswell!


did i mention hossa was my favorite player while he was a sen .. he was the main reason i started liking the sens while sitting in edmonton ... but facts are facts .. he did leave me disappointed ..

Okay, if we go with this train of thought, how many times would we have gotten into the playoffs? If we ditch the top players of the regular season, we wouldn't have even made it to the playoffs.

If we're going just on playoff performers to sign, then how many of the Sens that we currently have would be on the roster today?

I'd love a long term signing with Anton.

I see him staying a solid level of playing for a number of years.

And he doesn't injury quickly or for a long term. With all the hits and blocked shots, his body is pretty damn tough.

He was one of the main reasons though. He carried the offense for many years, we would have missed the playoffs without him on more then one occasion.

I didn't follow the Sens that closely before the past couple of years, so I can't really comment.

I do remember him finally scoring on TO - vs Belfour in the playoffs. I've never seen anyone so relieved.

While the parallels to Senator playoff performances are evident, let's not let this Volchenkov-oriented thread go too far off-topic.

Yes because Jacques Martin was going to trust Spezza and Havlat to play prime minutes back then. Hossa did more then just play offense he was easily this teams best defensive forward. If the cap was what it is now last year I would have easily paid Hossa Reddens money. Hossa is the best two-way forward in the NHL.

Heatley is going to ask for the same amount if not more when his contract is up too. Hossa is the better player but Heatley is awesome for what he does at 4.5 million.

OK NyQuil, I'll stop with the Hoosa talk as this is a Volchenkov thread.
