Hey guys,why not give him more time to develop,this is similar to Vinny Lecavalier,at the begining some people said that he wasn't good enough,overated, with no heart,with a big ego,etc....,and just look at him know, the same can happen with Hossa.!! .
Vincent Lecavalier is a "surdoué". Not that Hossa has no talent, he has natural ability. But thetwo are not in the same class. Hossa has had 4 years to develop. The time has come. Personally though, I just feel he doesn`t stack up next to some of our other pups who also deserve a chance.
I am realy getting fed up of get rid of Hossa stories. This kid has talent he just needs to put it all togther. He is not Eric Chouinard who was heartless. Hossa is living under his brother's shadow and his best friend is Marion Gaborik so guys lighten up. If you realy want to trade him tell us why and with realy reason not because he cut his hair or he is too what ever. Real reasons!!!! please
I think the fans expected too much out of Hossa because of his bloodlines. Once he doesn't live up to expectations they turn on him. He will never be a top six forward but think of a fourth line forward instead. Maybe, a third line forward in his career years. Different type of player than Jason Ward but similar story and impact.
