Hossa\'s excited to get season started
Hossa received a few pointers on his first day with the Red Wings from goalie and new teammate Chris Osgood.
DETROIT – Superstar right wing Marian Hossa arrived in town last Friday evening. On Monday, he was skating with many of his new Red Wings’ teammates at Joe Louis Arena.

Hossa is participating in informal workouts at JLA before the Red Wings head north to training camp in Traverse City beginning Sept. 20.

The outlook for Hossa is completely different than last September when he was preparing for his third campaign with the Atlanta Thrashers.

“Obviously, I know I’m going to a different team,” Hossa said. “I was in Atlanta last September and now I’m with one of the top teams in the league. That’s the biggest difference, the level of the goals. In Atlanta, the goal was always to make the playoffs, and here the goal is to win the Stanley Cup.”

In February, the Thrashers traded Hossa – who was to become a free agent at the end of the 2007-08 season –- to Pittsburgh, where he helped the Penguins reach the Stanley Cup finals.
The former first-round draft pick of the Ottawa Senators, Hossa signed with the Red Wings on July 2.

“I signed here because there is a great chance to win it,” he said. “Obviously, it’s not guaranteed, but on paper this is the best team, and we just have to prove it and hopefully I made the right decision to come here.”

A 10-year veteran of the league, Hossa has said that he turned down fat contract offers from other teams just for a shot at winning the Stanley Cup in Detroit this season.

“It’s exciting to come to Detroit with a lot of history,” he said. “It was a short summer for us. I obviously would have liked to stay at home a little longer, but I’m looking forward to the new challenge and playing with the great players, the experienced players and it’s going to be a lot of fun. It’s always fun when you’re winning and that’s why I’m here.”
