His trade value is propably all time low now, he wouldnt bring much. Hes not a bust by a long shot. Hes had couple hot starts and one cold one. Happens lot to young players, especially in this organization, where players start gaining wind in their sails at about 23-24 years of age (Theo, Markov, Ward, Ribeiro, Ryder).

Hossa (and Hainsey) still has couple years of time, even there might be some damage done from being rushed and yanked around. The story might be a little different if he had been kept down and had one great season at AHL level to boost morale like Ryder/Ward had... I can only hope BG can resist temptations bringing Balej up too early.

Anyways I would just hate to see one of them being traded for 'proven player' and turning into stars elsewhere soon after...
