The love that Hossa is getting is unbelievable. Wow does this board run hot & cold.
1. Nylander - the most impressive thing is he still manages to reach up and take his mouthpiece out only milliseconds after the puck crosses the line...
2. Straka - Has the hands a solid move...even in failed attempts, always very close.
3. Shanahan - While being candid about not being as successful in SOs as breakaways, even in missing (like then NJ game), he sees the available holes; also, he clutch and fits the role of a deciding 3rd shooter well
4. Jagr - 2 for 11 isn't a title to brag about, but outside the pressure of the first 3, Jagr has the ability no doubt to be the best. Seriously appears to be a confidence issue as he dismantled goalies in the preseason SO opportunities.
5. Prucha - Tale of two Petes...He is awesome when he roofs it but abysimal when playing the puck near the ice
6. Cullen - If you watched what he did in Carolina SOs, he has speed and a quick move.
7. Hossa - Some people have labeled him as "cool" in SOs...that's not cool, he's just not really dynamic. Review his 2 SO goals (this year) and attempts from last. Rounds out the last of the "talent" Ranger shooters, but barely makes the list...not a top 3 by ANY stretch.
