He'll play better and better as the season advances and will be a force to be weary about in a few years.. but be PATIENT!
Sorry for disagreeing with your views on Hossa.
No I don't watch the games with a blindfold on.
I think we have to produce offense. That is why I said I think that he has not been progressing. And to whoever it was who talked about Ryder and Ward...they spent the entire season basically in Hamilton last season playing in all situations and now they are up and playing well in Montreal....better than Hossa IMO.
My god why is it when someone has a different opinion on this board than someone else......whatever.
Are we that Thinskinned that we cannot accept others opinions???
Crush his confidence?
We have him to put the puck in the net. We have guys on our team who can do exactly what he doing right now.
Crushing his confidence could come if we put him up in the press box also.
Moving him back to Hamilton where he could get playing time in ALL spots...PK, PP and a regular shift could be a real bonus.
Don't get me wrong I think he is gonna be a player for us but the longer he goes without producing offense the more he will lose confidence and IMO (my opinion!) will find himself up in the press box.
Remember its just my opinion.
This is a message board to voice an opinion is it not?
