You decided to use stats and point production, when there is no way to make a realistic comparison with Hossa, given their short time together.

Anyone with a set of eyeballs and an ounce of understanding about the game, could see Hossa and Crosby played on another level together. They worked the puck together beautifully and Hossa actually was setting up Crosby on a game by game basis, which is something you rarely see with Kunitz and Dupuis.

Once again your argument is ridiculous. When has Crosby played consistently with a playmaker in his career? How can you say he isn't at his best when the most he ever played with a creative player was all of three months?

Your claim that the best player in the world can't work with creative players is not only flat out asinine, it's false because Hossa WAS a creative player. If Crosby had several years to build on his chemistry with Hossa like he has done with Kunitz, I'm 100% sure they would be a much harder duo to stop than Crosby/Kunitz.

Iggy is a clear upgrade over Dupuis. Anyone who suggests otherwise shouldn't be taken seriously.

He SET UP CROSBY? Crosby only had 6 goals in the playoffs to Hossa's 12. Hossa had 16 assists to Crosby's 21. So, like I said, you're wrong again. Get your facts straight before blindly throwing out assumptions.

And you're talking about Stempniak who isn't even in the same league as Hossa talent wise.

Iggy would be an upgrade, yes. But not for an absurd price on a rental. Factor that in and it's probably not a good deal at all.
