Hossa Wants The Cup

Blog: KK Hockey By Paul

from Eric Duhatschek of the Globe and Mail,

A day after three dozen or so of his peers went chasing after the most dollars they could possibly grab, Marian Hossa left tens of millions on the table Tuesday to sign a modest one-year, $7.4 million deal with the Detroit Red Wings.

Hossa was being greedy all right — but not in the conventional sense of the term. At the age of 29 and 10 years into his NHL career, Hossa was greedy for a Stanley Cup — and figured his best chance to win one was to go to the defending champions.

Vacation’s Over

Blog: Abel to Yzerman By IwoCPO

Updated 1543:  Feeling a little giddy? Wait until you read the Dive fan reaction below.  Frigging priceless.

Tonite…reaction from the world.

Now? Adrienne.

I think the Wings are going to win 60 games next year. They have the most cohesive dressing room in the league, the best 1-2 punch on defense of any team in the league and now they’ve added a primetime goal-scorer to take passes from Datsyuk, Zetterberg, etc., etc.

Forget about it. Nobody’s beating Detroit.

Afternoon Line

Blog: KK Hockey By Alanah McGinley

From Mike Chen’s Hockey Blog,

I’m reserving comments on the whole free-agent idiocy until the second day finishes so that we get the remaining chips (hopefully) off the table. So far, though, what a bunch of freakin’ morons (the GMs, not the players).
