Cpt recently had a heart attack. The nurses were taking him from the ER up to surgery, but passed through the children's ward on the way there. He woke up on the gurney and asked the nurses "Am I in heaven?". One of them had to tell him "No, we're just taking the short-cut through the children's ward"

Isles activate Filppula off IR. Send Ho-Sang to Bridgeport


Can't say I'm totally surprised with the way he's played lately. Nice compliment for Dal Colle that he was the one that stuck.

Don't really like that decision though.

Isles will lose tonight. This is a moronic move. Ho Sang may not be scoring like you want him but he is a game changer. He can carry the puck and he makes opposing team work to cover him.
Sometimes its just a chemistry thing. What is isles record when Ho Sang has played in last 2 seasons. Its not a coincidence.

I forgot that Dal Colle was lighting the lamp so much. oh well. They were will realize it is mistake and Ho Sang will be back.
If you going to be stupid like this than just trade Ho Sang and move on.

I'm very surprised with this move. I did not see major mistakes JHS was doing to be sent down and the team is winning and overall record with JHS in the lineup is good.

Been going on for years. I probably shouldn't admit this, but the first time I heard this complaint was when the American teams were complaining that the Canadian teams were well-rested for the playoffs, because they played more of their games early in the season. This was during the Original Six days.......circa 1964.
- JohnScammo


It really is a big deal though... I am a conspiracy guy when it comes to the NHL but when you have a ton of games before the playoffs it can have an effect. Guys get hurt during those games. Other guys can't rest if you are trying to make the playoffs or get higher position...etc. Hamonic got hurt during one of those insane weeks and we lost him for the playoffs. There were a few others that I am blanking on right now.. but it does annoy me that NOT ever are we the team with more games than everyone.

I think both should stay with the Isles. I'm thinking MDC turns the puck over less and is more reliable and coachable than JHS. Still very surprising.

Yeah at that same game I was talking to my buddy about how terrible the Isles fanbase is as a whole. There was some lunatic sitting in the row directly in front of us that would complain and yell about every little tiny thing that happened and was standing up and down looking like he was having a seizure.

Don't even get me started in the Isles Hipster Herb Army singing their dumbass battle songs up in 329. The biggest (frank)ing embarrassment I've ever seen.

It’s not a coincidence that every female in said herb army look like they play softball. The dudes are all dungeons and dragons guru’s pre internet.

I get it... we had said a few times on here that he was NOT doing what he was supposed to at times. He kept losing the puck, failing to get it deep, and more than anything else every time I saw the kid on the bench he had this 1000 yard stare into the abiss. Did not seem engaged at all with coaches, players, etc.

Bottom line is He played a lot better this time than last time. He will be called up if a spot clears and hopefully he is even better the next time. He was given ample opportunity this time. He was on PP. He was on the top lines. He got playing time.

You gotta trust Trotz's judgement... He knows what he is doing with this kid. He is trying to squeeze greatness out of him.

It's inarguable that the team has been better with him in the lineup though. I think at this point he's better off learning at the NHL level than he is playing in the AHL. I sort-of understand it, but I think it's a bad move. Dal Colle has looked better but I don't think he's looked half as good as Ho Sang, even with his flaws.

No doubt Barry has the resume. It's surprising because of the record with JHS though. Maybe a trade happens soon to open up a spot? Just think it was better to try to finish the season with JHS and sit him when really needed.

MDC has the edge in battle level and not turning over the puck. JHS has the speed and overall skill edge. Barry loves the simple and safe game.

MDC doesnt turn over the puck b/c he never has it. Ho Sang is a possession player and very tough assignment for opposing teams. Turnover or not our Record with him playing and without speaks for itself.
Well we need to make sure we make it to 30 years before we win 7 straight or more. 29 is such a odd number. Whats another year.
