Hossa the shooter
Enter Hossa, who although just 29, has already spent parts of 10 seasons in the NHL (would be 11 if not for the lockout). And he's done so because he has a multi-faceted game. So what role will Hossa take on the top line?
"I have to make sure I shoot the puck to the net," said Hossa. "That's probably going to be my job. I like to play that kind of game."
Sounds good. Hossa has six 30-goal seasons to his credit and two more 29-goal seasons. The rest of the Red Wings combined have six 30-goals seasons and one 29-goal season.
