Who is the better playoff player? Meaning, whose style would be best suited for the long, hard playoffs.

Hard to argue cause only one of them never played a single playoff game

Depends on the style of the team. Jokinen is tougher and would probably take more abuse. Hossa is smarter and a better skater and would probably avoid taking too much abuse.

I'd say Hossa.

Probably Jokinen. Him not ever playing in one should drive him to play amazing hockey. Plus I believe he's conditioned enough that it won't affect him too much to go on a long playoff run.

Tough call, considering Jokinen never played in playoffs...

It's hard to tell really because Jokinen never played in the playoffs. Hossa has been good in the playoffs at the beginning of the 00's but before that and last year he was not a factor. If you look at the World's, Hossa always put great numbers, while Jokinen's number are not that good, but he is playing in a much more defensive team than Hossa. Both had great Olympics in 2006. I really don't know who to vote for but I would think that with the Habs, Hossa would do better because I think a Ryder/SKost-Koivu-Hossa line looks better than 2 lines without good wingers (considering we trade Higgins in both case). Florida might be more interrested in Plekanec though

I'd rather have Jokinen due to two big factors:

1. He's a centre
2. He's not a UFA and to me, that is HUGE in the negotiation. The price should be way lower for a UFA, but it won't be. Too many dumb GMs.

However, if you want me to strictly answer the question and say who is the better of the two period, probably slight edge to Hossa. Although his disappearing act is a bit troublesome.

Is Hossa's playoff resume extremely deceiving?I don't know where he obtained that postseason choker label,other than last year against the Rags he was decent as a playoff performer with the Sens.

Who can speak Finnish better, Jokinen, or Hossa? Hmm

He sure has a better playoff record than Ribeiro, but that's child's play to accomplish.

I'd say that his playoff performance is worrisome, but he's hardly owned the label "choker," I'd agree.

Yeah, but the numbers that he did put up with Ottawa were on a stacked team. Of course, the rest of that team disappeared when they were hit. They were a battered skill team by the time the Leafs were through with them.

And that might be the case this year against Ottawa and Anaheim for whoever wants the Cup. Sure, we have the most hits in the league, but how many of them have the kind of impact of Anaheim's hits or those past Toronto teams?
