I agree that Hossa does look unlucky at times but he does seem to have improved his effort over last year. I think he compliments the Ribeiro line nicely and even though Plekanec should be called up at some point as he surely deserves his shot I don't think you can swap Plekanec in for Hossa at this point. I see Plekanec as Juneaus replacement next year.

On that note...has anyone thought about a line combo of

Ryder - Ribeiro - Zednik?

This would be a significant improvement over the Hossa-Ribeiro-Z line as Ryder has way more drive to the net than Hossa. I can just imagine Ribeiro raking in the assists as he has 2 snipers on the wings
