Hossa signs with Detroit

Just a one year deal for $7.4 million.

My guess is that he didn't give Ray Shero a chance to match, because if I'm Mr Shero, I jump at that offer.

This makes the offensive situation at forward a bit on the bleak side compared to last year. It will be interesting to see how our GM manages to fill in the holes. I don't think it will be Jagr filling them... but that's just my opinion.

I think allof pittsburgh needs to hold their breath and trust GM Ray Shero. If he could create a run to the stanley cup in 2 years, he surely can find two wingers for malkin and sid in two months :)

Its kind of an indictment against the Penguins. Hossa turned down BIG money for obviously what he feels is his BEST shot at winning a cup, with Detroit.

Detroit says thanks for the cup and thanks for Hossa.

Sorry Pitt, good luck with making the playoffs the next few years.

@anon #1 - I couldn't agree more. Some trust in the GM is highly recommended

@anon #2 - you do have to wonder if there's something about the Pens that is driving away all of these guys... maybe it's Therrien... I don't know

@cindy - dude (or dudette), not make the playoffs? Really? Now you're just showing that you're dumb... but that's okay - you do like Detroit...

You people sure are angry. The article in the P-G this morning was HILARIOUS. The journalist all but blamed Hossa for not winning the cup for Pitt. lol...Malkin?

Don't hate on Detroit because you can't handle it.
