Lou needs to have Garth call Chia and have JHS traded for RNH.

Dude never takes responsibility. Its always the coaches, GM's, etc. fault. Whiny little female dog. Forget an alarm clock someone needs to buy him a mirror.

I also love how every story points out his heritage. Who gives a flying (frank), he is playing hockey not working for the (frank)ing UN

2 points in next 2games is what we want. 4 and we on something.

Lou just traded him to the Wolfpack. His Swedish heritage will fit in better there.

I'm not defending him. I'm just pointing out the editor took a bad interview and gave it a worse headline for click bait. I was a big Ho-Sang fan and I was really hoping he could make it. He's exciting to watch, but it's becoming clear he will never get out of his own way.

Wow this kid just cant get out of his own way. At this point, its a distraction, and they should just get rid of him...….for whatever he can get in return.

You hit the nail on the head...….who cares what his background is. All anyone cares about is his on ice play, which is embaressing stats wise.

I doubt he's worth much. It's entirely possible (probable, even) Lou jettisons him to the first person that is willing to take him...but I honestly think he's got more value playing in the organization than he does getting traded for a 5th round pick in 2020.

To be clear, I'm not defending him. He's his own worst enemy at this point. But I'd almost rather hold out for the microscopic chance he figures it all out because the chances of a 5th round pick being anything valuable are near-zero.

Its their job as reporters to get a story. Its Ho Sangs job as a pro athlete to not bite the bait and chirp. Its literally been something with him everywhere he's gone. At some point im sure Lou, his agent, or heck even his own family have prob told him to do his talking on the ice. He just doesn't get it. He'd fit in nicely playing wing alongside both Kirills in the "don't draft me league"

At this point I don't even think its about his play or possible upside. I think this new regime is adamant about a culture change, well getting rid of this kid is a start. Keeps everyone else in line, and puts a little fear in everyone to shut their mouths. Funny how its literally always him. One could argue that Dal Colle has a sh!ttier situation, and was a much higher draft pick, and yet nary a peep out of him. If its up to me, I vote that kid off the island, even if its for an IOU and a broken one piece lol

I agree. Not sure Lou does but I'm not giving up on him just yet. I'm close but not there yet

I get it, believe me. I won't say boo if they dump him for nothing other than future considerations. I haven't considered him a serious prospect for a while now, but all I'm saying is that, strictly from a value standpoint, he's got more value in the organization than he does getting dumped for an end-of-the-draft pick or some D-level prospect.

But his demeanor may ultimately trump any on-ice value and I can't say I disagree with that at this point.

I refuse to ever root against any prospect of the Islanders, but at this point I can't really find a reason to defend him. I don't want to dump him to ARI, or someone like that, for nothing...but if they do, it'd be tough to argue against.

Egad! Another @TorontoMapleLeafs slump. You tell me; should there be an S.O.S. for H.M.S. (His Majesty's Sharpshooter) -- not an AWOL, I'm told -- Nylander? Just wondering what The Faithful in Old T.O. believe.

I hear you...….im actually very curious to see how they handle this. He's been told already to not do this, and here he is publicly stating his dismay. The problem I have with Ho Sang is he's not all there. Clearly he's letting the pressure of having a crappy start get to him, as seen by his now third media gripe. The problem here is I honestly don't think there are many GMs who are going to be willing to take this kid on. On his draft day, every GM had their finger on their nose saying "not it", except good ole Garth. Now they're stuck with Snows problem, and its clearly not correcting itself.

I don't even think he's leaving anyone much choice at this point. I can smell him and his agent asking for a trade before Thanksgiving.

Ho-Sang's not saying anything in the interview that I haven't wondered about when I read about how prospects are used in B-port. A lot of times it seems like they're thrown into grinding and defensive roles...and I get that's to round out their games and I agree with doing that up to a point. But it also feels like scorers go ice cold there an awful lot...maybe from losing their confidence after not being able to play to their strengths at the pro level.

But...that's stuff you talk about to Thompson, or maybe management if you feel like you're not getting through to the coach. Not the press. It doesn't sound from the quotes like he was trying to be malicious, but that's exactly what it is when you bypass the team and go to the press with anything. Guy needs to shut up, keep his head down, and play hockey, and I'm not sure he's capable of doing that. The time to be a high-maintenance diva is...well...never...but if you're going to be one, it's after you've established yourself as a 30g/65pt player.
