If you can't beat them, join them!
Yesterday, Marian Hossa, one of the most talented player of the NHL without a contract accepted an offer from the Detroit Red Wings. A one year deal worth $7.45 Millions.
Just a few weeks ago, Hossa was playing for the Pittsburgh Penguins and was trying to defeat the Red Wings in the Stanley Cup final. We all know the rest of the story: the Wings won the series in six games.
So instead of trying again next time and lead the Penguins to a Stanley Cup championship, Hossa decided to join the Wings that will try to repeat their fantastic season during the upcoming 2008-2009 season.
In 701 matches in career, Marian Hossa scored 299 goals and totals 648 points.
