top 15.

I think it will be interesting to see how much better Detroits system makes a player.

Whenever Hossa has been asked to carry a team on his back and carry it, he hasn't.

Obviously Detroit is a great fit for him in that he won't have to. (same with Pittsburgh)

I'd have him between 10 and 15 in the league.

You're choosing a great complementary player over one who carried his injury-decimated team on his back to the top of the division, and was indisputably the better player in the playoffs until injury/flu struck.

But it's your twisted prerogative.

Hossa > Malkin: that's when you know you're in norrisnick's funhouse mirror world.
I like complete players. You can call it twisted, but early June showed you why I like complete players.

In blissful ignorance of everything else that made Detroit and Hossa successful, and Malkin unsuccessful, apparently.

Everyone's entitled to an opinion.

the way i look at it is that most teams have atleast one player better then him on their team, some have more than one. now that i think about it he should probably be around 20-25 even though i voted 30.

Your opinion on this one's twisted and ignorant, but it's yours. I won't deny you that.

Mostly because I wouldn't want it mistakenly attributed to some innocent soul.

Morrow surely isn't better than Hossa.

I voted top 15.
The thought that Detroit has 3 'top-15 forwards' and 2 'top-15' defensemen makes me a little sick...

Yeah, yeah, yeah, and I bet you thought Hossa sucked before he signed with your team... God I can't stand those kind of Red Wings fan... At least, that one isn't the worst I've seen. The guy that said that Holstrom could be a HOFer is.

I thought Hossa was your best player. Scared me ****less whenever he had the puck.

Dig through my post history here and elsewhere and you won't find anything bad to say about Hossa.

Hossa is a top 15 player in the entire league. Now Detroit has 4 of them.
