On Hossa, 94...

I think MTL had patience, but had Hossa for a longer period of time. He was a guy who had the skill level and size and that should've translated into better results if he played with the desire necessary. After a couple seasons, it was the same-ol, same-ol and they thought they had enough of that type of player and moved him for a different type (who's actually starting to work out for them of late too, funny enough). Had Hossa not broken out now, I doubt we see next season and he could still flourish. You gotta cut the strings at some point, and that's the key, at which point.
