A healthy knee and some serious bling have given Marian Hossa
the chance to feel as relaxed as he's ever been on the ice.
Chicago is lovin' it.
"A couple of years ago in Atlanta I had a similar start, but definitely I feel healthy, I feel relaxed and I'm playing with a great centerman and a great wing," Hossa told NHL.com Thursday. "I feel much lighter on the ice and I'm having more fun on the ice, but I try not to make a big deal out of it. It's only eight games."
Yeah, but it's a League-best 7 goals and 4 assists in those eight games, all with Jonathan Toews
in the middle and fellow Slovak Tomas Kopecky
on the left. Hossa hasn't been this prolific at the start of a season since 2006, when with the Thrashers he flew out of the gates, scoring 10 goals and dishing out 5 assists to help Atlanta jump out to a 7-1-1 start.
