You may be right but you can't deny that Hossa IS a soft player as well. I'd be very pleased if Hossa would finally get out of his world and starts producing like he should be. If it's a confidence problem and he's able to solve it, well fine! But I still doubt that he will one day... He's just too soft and lazy IMO. I don't hate him though. He's young and I know we must be patient with him... But I would still trade him for Huselius if we have the opportunity. Marcel will always be in the shadow of his brother unfortunately.
