Second line power forward......Hum....Okay. Remember Leclair, Bertuzzi, etc. took NHL time to develop and find their comfort level as well as needing to build a fit with their linemates. Hossa is LEARNING and is still working the boards very well, making passes and we know from last year that he can shoot. Remember he is still a Kid at 21 ...and power forwards take TIME.

Along with Ryder, and Ward we ahve the makings of kids taht can handle the going along the boards and the slot. Others may take TIME to develop the sense to crash the net with urgantcy. Relax ...tehy are progressing nicely thank you...including Hossa. The holes in his game are less apparant than last year, andit is early. He will improve with every shift has he has done thusfar. Gainey said his job was to make the players better. Obviously he knows what he is talking about. just look at Hossa.
