Hossa reminds me too much of John LeClair when he was with Montreal to give up on.
WOAH! what ETHNIC situation!?

Leclair works hard and scored big goals in Montreal. He was pegged as a 3rd liner and played there with 3rd line players. Then he went to Philly, played with Lindros on the 1st line and got 20 minutes a game.

Hossa started the season on the 1st line with Montreal. With Koivu and Zednick. He did not produce. That's what led to his demotion. He's inconsistant, takes nights off, doesn't put up big numbers in the AHL... and he tries to pattern his game after his brother's: a far superior player. He can' t figure out who Marcel is cuz he wants to be the next Marrian.

Hossa IS NOT a "character" player. In fact, he lacks character.
