Absolutely not. Becuase the fact of the matter, unless you are pointing to short periods of time that have been the exception, as opposed to the rule, he cannot be considered "enough of a scoring threat".
If Hossa could perform like that, he'll end up with a nice long career and maybe a Cup or two.
He has yet to show that he can play on such a level. Here is his synopsis....Hossa plays outstanding for a 10 games. Scores some goals. Then, the goals stop coming, but he still plays well-enough for a handfull of games. Then, his play promptly drops off a cliff to the level of no better than a 4th liner for a period of several months. He gets benched. He comes back and plays great again for a period of 10 games. Then he promptly disappears. And so on and so on and so on.
