If you are 1 player away I would agree. Hossa is not a player that will carry a team or even a line by scoring 100 points. he had 66 points this year. Hossa needs talent around him for him to score 100 points, he isn't a franchise type player is all i am saying.

Most teams are not 1 player away. Boston is not. montreal could be. who else??? The Canucks?? Who else can afford him??? The jackets...please.
