Is Hossa Jinxed?

from Jason Kay of The Hockey News,

He has answered the call every time Slovakia has called, but has never scaled the podium. When Slovakia experienced its greatest achievements on the world stage – silver, gold and bronze medals at World Championships in 2000, 2002 and 2003 respectively – Hossa was engaged in the NHL playoffs for the chronically underachieving Ottawa Senators.

And, of course, we all know what happened the past couple years in the NHL with Pittsburgh and Detroit.

So, if you’re a Hawks fan, should this worry you? Is every team on which Hossa plays doomed?
