That's nonsense. Is he a good finisher? Absolutely not. But the guy has the offensive talent, alot more than Betts. I know you've seen him maintain possesion of the puck in the offensive zone plenty of times. The fact that he usually has linemates with hands of stone isn't his fault. I believed in Hossa last season, and he was pretty godawful for alot of it, and I'm sticking with him this season . I believe this guy is gonna put it together and become a solid NHL 2nd or 3rd liner.
