    Re: F Benedict Hossa!!!!!!

    I have no ill-will toward the guy anymore.

    He wasn't a homegrown Pen's product, drafted and given his first chance with the team. He wasn't even a FA who decided they wanted to be here.

    Hossa was acquired as a playoff mercenary in a trade. Sure he declined a long term deal from the Pens and bolted for Detroit, but the guy took a one year deal to go where he thought he could win. Can't blame him for that at all in this day and age of athlete's always chasing the security of a long term deal and going to the highest bidder.

    As soon as he was handed a big plate or crow as Crosby skated away with Lord Stanley's Cup...all was forgiven and he was just another player.


    Besides, I'd much rather see him win it than Hartnell.

    I echoed those sentiments in one of the threads over the main Steeler board when the subject of the Stanley Cup came up (can't remember which thread it was now).

    I woulda made the same thread about a different player if Philly won. I hate them too.

    This was like a Ravens vs Cowboys SuperBowl to me. Yuck!
