Hossa has one major flaw in his game - he doesn't use his linemates very effectively. As much as you would like to lump this into "offense," it's the main reason he has to run up and down the ice so much.

Kane is just a flat out better player when everything is said and done, regardless of whether he pumps gas or not.
Kane's flaw is turning it over at the blueline on a regular basis. Not recognizing that the blueline is stacked 4 across and not dumping it in. No PK. Comparing the two is silly when their games are significantly different. Hossa is stronger on the puck...perhaps the best in the league. Choosing one or the other is a personal choice...yet you need both type of players to win a Cup.
