He does lead the NHL in goals scored while lying on his back.

Hi, so. BST followers: Be warned, responsibilities have shifted, and I'll be doing a lot more high schools and less BST. (Example attached.) HS followers: Be warned, I'll still tweet lots of AHL. @fornabaioctp, disappointing everyone since 2009.

Now you can read into Josh Ho-Sang practicing on the #Isles' 2nd PP again today. Trotz wanted to see in case he uses him tom. v Detroit: "We just said that if we’re going to put him in, then that would be the spot we’d put him. So we just said, ‘Let’s take a look at it.'


Hopefully they are not facking with his head.

He just need to keep his mouth shut. "No comment" .. that should be all he says to any reporter for the rest of the year.

Cool story.. albeit a bit heart wrenching.

Anthony Greco made his NHL debut last night for the Florida Panthers. He is a kid who was born in Queens but grew up in Long Island. Played Middle school hockey at Massapequa. Moved to Minnesota when he was a teenager and then played for Ohio State for 4 years.

His dad is FDNY and could not attend the game b/c he is battling Cancer from Post 9/11 issues. ... but he did get to see his son make it to the NHL.

Hopefully not. You get a sense Garth's Bridge prospects are really going to have to knock Lou and Barry's socks off.

Yeah have to admit it’s getting a bit weird at this point. He has no issue making some puzzling line changes at times then he makes it seem like this is the biggest decision of his life. Just throw the kid in and if sucks then move on if he doesn’t get it together in a few games. The problem is I have a feeling that whenever Ho Sang actually does play if he so much as sneezes wrong on the ice he’ll never be heard from again. 😂

I honestly did not expect this from Barry. He seems to have a real stubborn streak in terms of young players.

no... Ho Sang. I am sure the last comment about how much he loves passing and an assist is better than scoring a goal the day after Trotz pointed it He doesn't shoot enough went over like a fart in a wet suit.

Right. Because the entire bottom six never makes a mistake or is weak on the puck, or makes poor decisions. I'm not even that big of a Ho-Sang fan, but I'm a bigger fan of his than the majority of this team, unfortunately

Yeah that’s kind of my point. This all seems like unnecessary drama to me with the collection of retreads we have out there on any given night. I’m no huge Ho Sang fan either but just throw him in and see what he’s got. Supposed to be an “evaluation” season. Stop evaluating these (frank)ing clowns that have no future here or I should say they sure as hell better not have a future here😂

I hear you loud and clear. There are four AHL guys I'd like to see slotted in in no particular order: Ho Sang, Bellows, Toews and Bellows. And maybe DalColle on a line where someone can get him the puck (as I think you and a couple of others have suggested) just to confirm that he sucks or maybe just needs a passer to set him up.

Bellows needs some time to marinate down there imo. If the season goes to crap then I don’t see the harm in having him up for a few games at the end in a lost season. Toews should’ve been up here in ocotober imo but now he’s injured. Seems like a lot of resistance to move kids up from what I can see which is puzzling under the circumstances.

Maybe it’s for the better? We’ll see how and when they play themselves on to the team but I don’t really see the competition preventing that from happening. Like it would be easier to understand if we had a great forward and defensive corp which we obviously don’t. We can’t score and our pp is an absolute joke and has been for a long time.

I agree. It's very confusing when you see the offseason moves. Nothing with the moves Lou made scream we are going for it this year. This is not a team playing well and they just had one or two bad games.
