Hossa on a roll: 11 goals in 15 games

Just thought everyone should know, if they don't already. From the AHL website:

"Hamilton left wing Marcel Hossa has scored 11 goals in his last 15 games after scoring three in his first 29."

Nice to see him regaining his confidence. He'll be good to go in the AHL Calder Cup playoffs (assuming Hamilton doesn't throw away too many games in the next little while).

Good for him!!

Like I've been saying... keep him... if we deal another prospect, bye-bye Plekanec.

He should be here instead of Dagenais, should be a no brainer but the organization seem to be hooked on a 6'5 guy who cant skate...

Personally, I hope Gainey is through dealing. We don't need anything else for the playoffs - it's not likely we'll win the cup, anyway. Trading away one of our best prospects in Balej was enough.

We should hold on to Pleks.

Plekanec is exactly Gainey's type of player... gritty, skilled, and a nasty-ass ******* to play against. He's built like a tank, and he can skate...

yes, he's one of our "lower tier" prospects, but i wouldn't move him and i don't believe that gainey will after trading balej.

On the Hossa front, this is great for him... he's finally responding to being in an adverse situation and he's been taking this team on his back lately. Hopefully this year was a good lesson for him and he's next seasons' Ryder.

GO HABS GO!

Yeah but Hossa isn't suppose to be a playmaking center not a sniper...that would suck to see him play in the role of Dagenais.

If only Hossa could have a work ethic like Ryder's. If Hossa's talent was matched with Ryder's hard work and learning curve, we could have a genuine superstar.

Don't be so sure. We are carrying a ton of forwards right now, but after tomorrow the roster limit is off. Hossa may get a shot. Slot him in on line 4, and if Dags has a couple of bad shifts, put him with Ribs and Ryder and see what he can do.

Has Hossa been scoring those goals as a C or as a LW down in Hamilton?

I think Gainey and Julien have been very methodical about how they reward ice time and who they call up and send down. It sounds like Hossa has earned himself another shot and I wouldn't be surprised to see him get it at all.

I guess it depends how Dags does in the next couple days. If he messes up too much I can see Hossa coming back to play with the Habs. If he could regain the form he had when he started off with us we wouldn't need to worry about getting another winger:

Zednik-Koivu-Kovalev
Ryder-Ribiero-Hossa
Bulis-Dowd-Dackell
Langdon-Begin-Ward

LW I think. If it were centre, the AHL website would have listed him as a centre. If it were NHL.com reporting it, that would be different, but theahl.com is basing this on his play in the AHL, so I would assume he's playing LW. Gratton's probably the C on his line.

Hossa has all the makings of another horse that was dealt way back in 1995.The guy that Dick Irvin sniffed had only 19 goals that season...ahem...who went onto being the best left winger in hockey the past 10 seasons.Hossa skates like this guy, is strong as an ox,has an accurate,hard shot, and has excellent hockey sense.It would be folly of unbelievable proportions to dump Hossa now because he isn't moving along fast enough for many a bored and impatient hockey fan.The other guy had to contend with a coach who didn't know what talent he had under his nose...Jack Demers, Jack Adams Winner for 1985!....who wanted to him to play C, when he couldn't do it.Now, we have the fans once more, not having learned diddly from that fiasco, hot to dump this mule of a hockey specimen.

Hainsey gets the bums rush as well around here, too.Talent like his and Hossa's are rare, and needed to build Cup champions.Let these guys grow and their talent will out.Hab fans will be richer for nothing more than some.....patience.

In case anyone needs reminding, the guy was John LeClair.

Quick

Bring Hossa up quick before his 5 good games for the year are wasted.

The habs are doing the right thing with Hossa. Same exact situation last season. At one point Hossa caught fire in the AHL and was scoring a lot. They called him up, he wasn't ready and it crushed his confidence. Let him finish the season in Hamilton with Jarvis.

If Hossa restart to score like last year and he is consistent I think he could be a really good 2nd liner , he go in corner and he can hit , he has good wrist shot . He have all the tools to become a great player in the NHL


Hossa - Koivu - Kovalev

Zednik - Ribeiro - Ryder

Bulis - Dowd - Ward

Higgins ( Langdon ) - Begin - Sundstrom


This would be my best lineup for next year .

He could be a good 2nd liner so you put him on the first line?

I think if we can secure a playoff spot, Hossa may be called by Gainey. The guys deserves IMO to be called up.

Boy im really starting to wonder if there will be any trades on deadline day now envolving hossa or even hainsey. I mean they are both playing well.

Im so confused

Very true, Hossa & Hainsey have a great set of skills.

To get something straight: Hossa hasn't played center in three (3) YEARS. So no, he won't be playing center any time soon, and isn't right now.
