Now this has got to be scary.
I am starting to think there is a curse on the Hossa name, and that the only tournament trophy he will win is the Memorial Cup.
Don’t get me wrong, Hossa is an amazing player who has great skill, but this is his third year in the Finals with three different teams in three consecutive years.
In 2008, it was with the Penguins, when he was acquired via trade from Atlanta, held his own and proved to many that the high price the Penguins paid was well spent.
But the Pens could not hold off the gritty, powerhouse Detroit Red Wings.
In 2009, he passed on a large contract in Pittsburgh to go with league favorite Detroit. This was admirable, and low and behold he played in a rematch between the Penguins and Red Wings; except this time he was on the opposite side.
This time it was Sidney Crosby and company to raise Lord Stanley in a tense seven-game series.
Now it's 2010 and Hossa signed a 12-year contract proving he believes the Hawks are a contender for many years to come. What this series holds for Hossa and his postseason blues can only be answered by time.
