Let's face it, the Wings have another shot next season. With the roster they have they'll be back.
As for Hossa, he didn't do much in the Finals, but he sure did help get them to the playoffs. Who knows where he'll be next season, but I give him a slightly better than 50% chance to stay with the Wings. I believe he'll want to stay but the management will have to decide whether they'll opt to keep him or not. Not sure if they will due to the cap.
I don't think they'll beable to afford to keep him...if I'm not mistaken, Zetterberg's new contract kicks in next year, giving him something like a $5 miilion dollar raise.
