It's either give him a shot, or dump him. And by shot I'm not talking 3 games. Hossa was afforded about 15 games to suck with Jagr; that's a fair shot.

HBNYC - my criticism back in 05-06 was his difficulty handling the puck (and awkward skating). The puck just never seems to be glued to his stick. I think it's a case of his mind being a step ahead of his hands. I agree that confidence can be an issue also, but I've never been overly impressed with his puckhandling. I do think that confidence had a fair amount to do with him shanking and whiffing more shots than normal though.
