No, I realize he's an odd duck, and needs to adjust to the ways of the NHL. I just have zero confidence that this is not going to turn into Niederreiter 2.0, where the kid gets traded and flourishes somewhere else. He was the only bright spot on the bottom 6 last season, and he got sent down for losing the puck while trying to do too much himself.......partly IMO because he was on a line full of stiffs.

He’s got a fresh set of eyes on him now with Lou and Trotz. If ho-Sang takes advantage of this fresh start, he can make his mark, he’s got the talent to do so. But if Lou and Trotz have an issue with him and cut him loose, I’ll trust their judgment. They’ve earned that trust with their track records.

Thats why he got sent down, his linemates didn't force him to try and beat the entire team and not pass and turn it over leading to as many chances against as for

Not arguing you little Imp. Just trying to get JS to see through his Boy crush that JHS isn’t being mismanaged or treated unfairly. He is bringing and has brought the negativity upon himself for years.

Thanks for that great 4-year old article, 7. I like the part where they say that Michael DalColle is Top 5 material in the draft.

Like I said before, I have complete confidence in Isles' management for the past decade.

That’s the most incredible part of it. It’s 4 years old and you can put any date on it then through present and it fits.
You picking the part of the article that mentions Micheal DalColle shows that your blinded by your JHS Boy love

JHS with his god given talent being picked after DalColle only proves my point. DalColle can’t even skate.

Hes the part from Dreger we didnt see about meetings

Maybe the same can and will be said of other teams as the process unfolds. Too soon to say.

Not blinded by anything.......except that he was the 2nd best skating forward on the team, and Dougie couldn't find a way for him to help the team.......a team that was in playoff contention with him in the line up, and rapidly fell out of contention with him being banished to Bridgeport.

But I get it. You're blinded by your love for Snow, Weight and Thompson, and their skill in developing players.

I get where they were before and after but his d sucked and that was the teams weakness, we couldnt outscore teams. He created tons of chances for the opposition and when sent down did the same stuff

Yes, his D sucked, and sending him down allowed the rest of the team to improve their D.

The over stick handling, non team play, turnovers and not learning from his mistakes, and let’s not even go to being late for team buses, practices and meetings.

Don’t see him pulling an Islanders sweater on again in his career. Imho just not a Lou L player.

Does anyone know Sorokin’s contract situation? I wonder if there’s a chance to get him over here sooner rather than later now that Lou and Trotz are running things as opposed to the Snow circus? I’d rather get Sorokin over here than go after some of the names that have been tied to the isles.

Not sure, but I think he has 2 years to go on his contract in the KHL. Chiefs keeps track of this stuff.

This is a serious question. I remember the famous incident where he overslept. But did he also do those things you list (late for buses, practices and meetings) while on the Islanders? I don't remember reading anything about that.
