Any GM worth two cents wouldn't publicly single out a player like that unless it was to prod him to work harder. If he were about to give up on the player, he would never mention the player's weaknesses; he'd only mention his strengths so he might find a sucker to trade him to. Obviously Gainey thinks Hossa has the assets to play for the Habs someday. Now it is up to Hossa to prove Gainey right or wrong.
