I think that CJ's talk with Hossa (both personally and in the media!!) seems to have charged his batteries up a bit. That line of Hossa-Ribs-Zed seems to have some chemistry and should be a bona fide 2nd line to start the season. Let's hope the rigours of regular season play doesn't render this line ineffective. With two decent playmakers on that line, Zed should get loads and loads of scoring chances throughout the season.

As for OUR Hossa, the coaches may want to work on building up his confidence and getting him shooting more. He has decent size to take the play in the corners, has good puck skills, he just seems to want to pass even when he has some good shooting options. He is still young and this can be coached, and I have already seen that the calibre of coaching has increased over last year and CJ is much better at developing young talent, so I think he will be working a fair bit with OUR Hossa.
