Hossa has been playing much better recently, as he is finally showing direction in his play, but calling him up would just hurt his play, knowing that a couple good games gets you back with the Habs. If the Habs do call him up, they would need to send someone down, as the forward corps are getting quite thin in Hamilton.

As far as calling up the younger guys to make this team play better, I just don't see them making a huge contribution. Balej was called up because he was one of the top five all around players in the AHL, but he had over a year experience. Although he is holding his own with the Habs, his contribution isn't turning this team around. Guys like Perezhogin and Higgins are still getting used to the physical game, and still need a while with the Dogs before they are ready.
