Hossa… a Detroit Red Wing JINX – Pittsburgh Penguins – PenguinPoop Blog

Hossa… a Detroit Red Wing JINX

Here we are off to the JLA… and really – why the heck are we so happy?

  • Our Flightless Birdies are 0 for 3 there.
  • Crosby is a MINUS 3 and no points in those games.
  • Our late season additions Guerin and Kunitz combined have ZIPPO points and are a combined MINUS 4.
  • Someone must have done something there, right… yet Gonchar also has zero points.
  • And Staal? He’s followed suit too, with no friggin points.
  • Fleury is holding down a healthy 4.33 GAA and a .857 SV% isn’t bringing a bundle of confidence either.                                     

So why is everyone so happy?

I’m thinking most Pittsburghers now believe in the HOSSA JINX.

Maid-Marian is about to become a legend in hockey history by jumping teams under the guise that he wanted his name on the Stanley Cup. He’s now not much more than a mercenary who may want his name on the Cup but not as much as he wanted the Seven Million Four Hundred and Fifty Thousand Dollars which was first and foremost on his mind.

If you think he’s playing like he wants his name on the Stanley Cup… your dreaming. I’m sure it’s now crossing the mind of Red Wing teammates who have to be are wondering if he’s just along for the ride.

Two members posting here (PENZRGR8 and Boombastic) have said it best…                                                                                                                                           Pittsburgh goes to Detroit to win titles and,  there will be a Hossa Line (like the Mendosa Line) fitting for players like Joe Thorton who put numbers up in the regular season but totally poop-out under the pressure of the playoffs.

The HOSSA JINX and the HOSSA LINE… that why we are smiling like the butcher’s dog. 

Game 7 isn’t in the bag… but you can smell it, can’t you.

 

 

This is DR Hook… carry on

    Was is everyone so happy? Because of the hidden vigorish! We are due! As for the attention Hossa is getting… why? 7-1/2 million and he’s reverted back to his Ottawa days where he’s only scored goals in 3 of the 22 playoffs games. The pressure’s on and this guy’s picture is now found on milk cartons in Detroit.

    There will be a lot of apologies going around once it is revealed that Hossa is a double-agent and really working for Ron Burkle! Boom -Boom -Boom.

    By the way, I cannot take credit for the Hossa Jinx comments. That was all Boom Boom. I loved it though!

      I read somewhere else that Ty Conklin is the actual JINX.

    Game 7.

    CAN YOU SMMMMEEELLLLL WHAT THE PENS ARE COOKIN’!!!!!!

    I actually think Hossa did us a favor.

    If he was on our team, do we go into a huge slump? (Which helped us grow.) Do we know how to come from behind? Do we switch coaches to one that fits better with our team?

    Great players. Great team. Players who want to win. They can feel it! They can taste it!

    Oh, Detroit will not go down without a fight. However, we won’t either!

    When we lost last year in game 6 it was not the game where we would win the cup. It was just to keep us in the series.

    This year is different. It is our year Red Wings. You have your 11 cups. It is our turn! It is our time!

    GO PENZ!

    No one says too much here about Disco DAN only playing Crosby 17 minutes??? What’s which that? IMHO that approaching a coaching move you would expect more from a Pierre Creamer. An elimination game and 17 minutes of ice time for Crosby??? Totally unacceptable. Someone had better whisper it in Disco Dan’s ear. Hello, Mario – maybe you should scream in it.

    Ray Ferraro on TSN said Hossa looks like he’s scared to touch the puck or do anything with it. Does anyone get it. This is what he claimed he wanted and he’s MIA. He’s not even close to showing up. Possibly that’s it; He’s a Jinx.

    IMHO you don’t keep players like Malkin and Crosby down. Crosby and Malkin have been getting the puck to shooters in position – like Crosby to Letang where Letang muffed it before getting the shot off. I’m thinking we see something like the North Stars last game. Maybe it won’t be 8 – 0 but I think the Pens crush them. There is a major difference in not scoring and completely dissapearing like Hossa has this series.

    They say that hockey stories and legends have been put to rest but if Hossa chokes away the Stanley Cup I’d bet that they’ll be no (pizza) dough being offered. Milbury is sure questioning if he’ll show up.
    Hossa leaves his team to go for the sure thing and the team he left wins it all—- God, I wouldn’t want to be in this guys shoes when the Pens take Game 7. Maybe he’ll go into hiding with Jagr in the KHL although it would be hard to find a better hiding spot than he has right now!
