The difference is Hossa is still an elite player even if he is struggling offensively because of his 2-way game. Both of those guys didn't play during the lockout and both of them get big minutes as top line players. They'll get through it and be back to normal soon.
Sharp, for sure (understandably) looked very rusty in game one, had a bit of a resurgence in the next few, but still hasn't found his rythym - as is the case for many players around the league. Hossa, I think is fine and that's great news after the concussion but we can't expect him to carry the team every game.
