  1. Well deserved, but it’s a shame his career had to end so early. I miss watching him play.

  2. Finally positive in 2020. Hossa was my favorite player before the Hawks signed him. I marveled at him for years and was beyond giddy the day the Hawks picked him up. Best free agent signing in Chicago sports history.

  3. Yeah baby! A terrific all-around player well deserving to be recognized as one of the all time greats.

    Congratulations Marian.

  4. Great news & well deserved…!

    Hawks don’t win the 3 cups without him…

    Isn’t he still under contract tho…?

  5. Probably one of the best 2 way player the Hawks had . Wish we could find another player like him in the next Draft .
    Glad for Hossa that he didn’t had to wait 1-2 more years to get his place in the all of Fame. I still think the Hawks would never win 3 cup without him.
    Love my Hawks and wish them a top 10 pick in the next Draft.

  6. Joey he is but league fast tracked his hof eligibility because he announced his retirement when his contract expires with what is no reasonable chance he will play again.

  7. This is great! And I agree with Okie, Hoss is the best free agent signing in Chicago sports history.

  8. The man never took a shift off.

    When the puck was not going in, you never saw him coast on a back check.
    That is how you win in the playoffs.
    Right Panarin lovers?

    Congrats Marian Hossa.

  9. Yess…Hawks could get the first draft pick …Lafrenière….That would be awesome for the Blackhawks….
    That’s a nice dream ….let see .

  10. One of my favorite things about Hoss is he left the dark side of the force PIT DET and went to the good side of the force and as soon as he did Stanley Cup Dynasty.

  11. A point-a-game, one of the best two-way players, and demonstrated dignity and class on and off the ice. Too hard to replace that combination. A major reason why the Hawks have been struggling.

    4/24/2010: Comes out of the box after serving 4 of his 5 min in OT and scores game-winner, putting the Hawks up 3-2 in the series. Whew! Nashville could have put us in a big hole.

    What a class-act gesture when the captain handed Marion the Cup in 2010. No more wondering if he was a jinx.

    And the league reduces hoodlum Raffi Torres’ suspension for his criminal cheap shot on Marion.

  12. Well deserved Hoss! – I was a little worried that he might not get the nod – glad I was wrong

    A pleasure to watch play (except maybe his shoot outs) – his two way game was peerless IMO during the time he played – he should have won a Selke at some point – it’s a bias towards centres IMO that cost him at least one Selke

  13. Other then being down 2 games to 1 against VAN and other we didnt ever really see what we could have done. I would bet that even down 2-3 we win in any of those series. That 2010 roster was the most stacked team since the mid 90s 95m payroll teams.

    We beat DET down 1-3 we would have beat those teams down 2-3.

    Then we might have really seen what the 2010 team could do. That would be a treat though I ll take the Kaner goal to tie and 5he 5 min PK and the soaps keep in and ring around and the Hoss finnish. I knew we were winning afeter Hoss scored that goal.
