Marian Hossa Off To A Very Slow Start

from Scott Powers of ESPNChicago,

He’s scored two goals on 50 shots for a 4.0 shooting percentage. He’s only once been under 11 percent in his career and was at 12.4 percent last season.

“I had lots of good opportunities and lots of great chances, but you know obviously the puck is not going in the way I like, so try to work hard and stay positive,” Hossa said.

Blackhawks coach Joel Quenneville thought an issue for Hossa has been his individual puck possession. Quenneville didn’t think Hossa was carrying the puck as much as usual.

“It doesn’t seem like he has the puck as much as he has in the past,” Quenneville said. “When he does have it it’s tough for opponents to get away from him. Just seems like his possession time, particularly in the offensive zone, is down. Usually he has it good things evolve on that. We got to have him have the puck a little bit more, be comfortable in that scoring area.”

he’s nearly 36. what’d they think when they signed him, that he’d play like its 2005 forever?
