they need just trade JHS already. If you arent going to bring him up then get something for him.

I cant believe people are still discussing Da Colle. The kid is a bust. Call a spade a spade.

3 players pick in top ten in 2010-14 NHL draft have never been in NHL as regulars. McIlrath, Griffin Reinhardt and Dal Colle. Two of them were islanders picks. How snow was able to flip Reinhardt for what turned to be Barzal/Beau draft is amazing.

I'm not sure what Ho Sang can even bring back? MDC is still only 22 years old. Does no harm to give him a look and especially since he has played well this year. Odds are still against MDC but you never know and especially when you have a great coach.

A 22 year old high prospect in AHL should be tearing the league apart. he is getting outplayed by steve bernier and ill leave it at that.

If you dont see any indication of skill or what he can do, its not going to happen.
Bellows will do what DaColle will never.

Ho Sang isn't worth very much in a trade. He'd be a buy-low opportunity for a GM who thinks/thought they could get him to fall in-line. Nobody is coughing up anything valuable for a guy who is a huge risk.

Better to let him toil in the AHL and, if Eberle or Bailey go down, hope that he's played well enough to be the guy they call up.

That's a 36pt pace.

Listen it's great the Islanders are playing mostly well, but Komarov isn't a good hockey player.

I'm not saying I'd target him in free agency and throw a four-year contract at him, but I can't say I've yelled at him on the TV all that much, and that's pretty much my barometer for whether someone's doing his job or not

I'm more concerned with Pelech and Mayfield than Leo. Pelech and Mayfield show flashes and it's back to lousy play.

I'm not gonna sit here the morning after beating the Rangers and be a Debbie Downer, I regret even replying about him. I don't think he's particularly valuable and I think his contract is utterly putrid, but I'll try not to beat that dead horse.

I actually like Mayfield b/c he brings a physical game. Only guy that more physical is boychuk.
But Pelech is not good. Bruno Grevais all over again. Time to give Toews a shot

Man, watching Pelech play D is tantamount to watching JFB play goalie. Mostly painful. He's usually out of position. I think he gets the yips with the puck when a little pressure is applied to him. He does show flashes every once in a while but he has some work to do. May be a confidence thing with him. Not sure.

Pelech does panic back there. He plays like an 18 year old with no experience. Isles are winning but the D is a concern along with the goalies. Robin especially seems to have an issue with moving side to side.

I think as far as MDC goes, they’ve clearly given him a “goal” to reach and he’s been playing his best hockey since being drafted. In return he’s going to get his shot with the big club. Fair is fair.....he has been producing

I agree. Does not mean MDC plays no matter what. He's playing well this year and you give him a look and if it's not working he goes back to Bridge.

He's also a LW and Ho Sang is a RW. They're not gonna replace Ladd, a LW, with a guy that only plays on the right side.

I still don’t think he’s going to be a great NHLer but fair is fair. He’s earned his right to get a look.

Hey look at Bailey, took him what...8 years before he finally started to figure it out? Never say never.

MDC may very well not be a great NHL player but he was a high pick and he's only 22 not 30 so it makes sense to give him a look and reward his good play in Bridge. Same for Ho Sang. He may never get it but it may make sense to give him a look later as well if the opportunity comes up.
