Fact is that Hossa has gotten more opportunities and more minutes per game dispite not performing as well as Dawes. I'm just suggesting that in his short time here he should have gotten at least as many minutes as Hossa if not more. And I am just wondering out loud how he would have acclimated to the bigs with that kind of opportunity. We can debate this all day but we both know that info can be pulled out that would support the statement that youth do not get chances until the team is forced to give them a chance (such as injury). There are hardly any examples of a youngster being given a decent look in a position that sets him up to succeed.
