Hossa signs with Red Wings, Slaps Penguins in the Face

“I want to have a best chance to win the Stanley Cup. I feel like Detroit is the team.”
- Marian Hossa

Yes, I haven't written anything in a while, but what happened today has prompted me to.

Screw you Marian Hossa. You want the easiest route to the Stanley Cup. That's all. You don't want "the best chance," you want what's easiest. In Pittsburgh you'd be on the first line and you'd have to work for it. In Detroit you're "secondary scoring" and "depth."

Screw you.

If you wanted to leave, you should have said something earlier. Don't give us bullshit about wanting to play for a contender. You didn't want a contender. You only wanted one team: Detroit. And that's fine. But you should have said so earlier. We wouldn't have wasted our time.

But what's done is done. Ray Shero was right, Hossa's gone and there's no point in talking about him.

But you haven't seen the last of the Pittsburgh Penguins Marian.
I have this feeling that sometime next June you'll be in the Stanley Cup finals, awaiting your date with destiny, and a group of black and gold party crashers will show up and ruin your night and make your life miserable.

Because Hossa, winning the Stanley Cup is NEVER easy, no matter what you're telling yourself today.
