hey fellas. Sorry i missed the summer exchanges. Why the hate? Whats wrong with BD? why you guys boycotting?

Jimmmy totally agree - If last nights prospect game was Ho Sangs Interview for a job i dont think he going to get it. Sure he has the stick handling but he just didnt do anything with puck to score. More thoughts - Bellow and Dobson need more time in minors.

Anyone going sunday - thats what im more curious to see

- Spartiarti

I didn’t watch the game but I read that Ho Sang was pretty good. As far as BD I don’t know where to start so I won’t.

There's a reason why 27 teams passed on Ho Sang. He's got talent, theres no denying that, but there's so much more to the game than stickhandling skills. See Rob Shremp...

Why in God’s name would you put moose knuckle on the third line? This is a good example of why my opinion matters more than everyone else🤣

I am still waiting for your guess on the lines at the start of the season Captain "My opinion is better than all".?

Who u want on 3rd line? Kovar? Leo? We are all listening.

Tired of this conversation. Ho Sang is incredibly talented and if anyone gives him a chance and stops with the "he has an attitude problem" sht He will be insanely good. NHL is a joke with this crap. Is he a drug attic? no... Is he a drunk? no Does he beat his GF or punch a girl in a club? no ... does he party all night? no..

he over slept once and likes to play video games. Oh and he had the audacity to be confident when he was a young kid and complained for not making Team Canada despite being one of the best players his age point wise.... What a BAD GUY.

He's a great kid. Never stops smiling.. never stops trying. He was banished last year for making some mistakes that everyone on the team made every game.

There is no denying his talent. However, he did make a lot of bad passes when he was with the Isles (I concede that he was far from the only one). Also his numbers with the Sound Tigers were just okay. I like the kid, I hope he figures it out. The other thing is he's not exactly a Lou or Trotz type player. We'll see what happens.

At no point did I reference his "attitude" problem. Im talking about his hockey acumen. He was sent down last year for his lack of defense apparently. I actually said hes super talented.....but theres more to the game than just stickhandling. My point was that its questionable whether or not he's willing to learn, or just go out and do things his way. That's the problem and that's why teams passed up on him.

As for not making Team Canada...…..I heard he pulled the race card and the good old boys of hockey Canada weren't having it.

Moose knuckle does not belong on any line let alone the third he’s a useless ape pretty much. Besides, it was a joke put your panties back on.

His numbers before that last stint with B-port were great. You had carear AHL guys saying he was the best player they have ever seen in the AHL. He is going to be a star this year.... count on it.

I don't see him lasting in this organization. He's gonna get frustrated with something and the real Ho Sang will stand up/pout

He was on a championship Pens team no? He had to have done something right, no?

I'll take the other side of that bet...…..I think he gets traded or demoted to the A by Christmas for "conditioning"

I guess, but every wheel needs cogs.....and he was a cog on a championship wheel.

Totally agree on JHS Jimmy however I read this article and for me it showed a different attitude by JHS. Maybe he is getting it. That would be great for Him and The Team.

Edit: BTW JHS is wearing #26 tonight in the rookie game vs The Flyers He only got an assist and The Isles lost 6-3

I really only watched the 3rd period, but I noticed JHS was trying to do too much again. Holding he puck too long, risky passes, not taking the shot for an easy goal. At one point I think he was out there for 2 minutes.

All that said, I know it’s only a bullsh!t rookie game. Hopefully he’ll work that out before camp

Just curious..... Was that before or after he was left off Team Canada? I mean, usually the race card is a reaction to something. So when did he play it?

Obvioulsy not picked, and then said it was because he was black. I think that "problem" is why he fell so far back in the draft.
