Hossa Heads to the ‘Burgh

With all of the speculation that either Ottawa or Montreal would pick him up it was actually the Pittsburgh Penguins who picked up Marian Hossa with only seconds remaining before the NHL trade deadline today. Hossa will join the like of Sidney Crosby and Evengi Malkin and suddenly the Pens look like potential Cup contenders.

The Pens did send Colby Armstrong (among others) to Atlanta and that is going to have a major effect on team chemistry; Armstrong and Crosby are long time friends. I’m guessing Hossa’s playmaking abilities are going to offset that loss though.
