Hossa playing on the top line reminds me of when Lindros was playing with Mike York and some journey men player, I cant remember his name, its drivng me crazy, but he scored a hat trick playing with Lindros and than in the same game had his nose broken by a puck that struck him in the face while sitting on the bench. Thats the situation Hossa is in, Talent always brings out the best in a medicore player for periods of time, it wont last. if we could get Lang even up for Hossa we should do it.
We have balance, scoring, defense, and toughness in our forward lines. Sure it never hurts to keep adding talent...but its time to move on and focus on the defense
