If you find the story post it. I love to read that stuff. Ha.

I’m sure they wanna move him but i don’t think anyone wants to deal....he fell far back at the draft for his attitude, not his talent.

- kindlyrick

Could be a throw in piece for someone at the deadline to a team looking to get younger and he has talent

Lou has ties to Gomez and you have to assume that’s why he held the job in the first place. Certainly not based on his awesome job last season.

Yep! Everyone has their favorites even Lou.

I mean, it'd make some more sense regarding why the move was made, but I'm not sure about that...one of the two beat writers was the person sending out those "record with and without Ho-Sang" tweets. I'm not sure he'd be riling up the fan base like that while withholding the fact that the move was because Ho-Sang was late. He'd either report what he knew or, at the very least, not tweet out "Bit of a surprise there" when the news broke.

Hey i didnt say it was the word of god just what someone said who follows them close and has some ties to the organization. For the record idk anyone in the front office or on the team anymore and i dont see the players out at bars restaurants or any of that stuff so its not firsthand

I heard from a reliable source that he was late to practice again

Guy doesnt get it either way he always reverts back to his old ways. I think he has talent but the way this fan base reacts you would think it was barzal that was sent down. Jhs has 2 points in 10 games and was on the top line and power play for several games and still didnt produce. Anyone who doesnt think that lee nelson and eberle are a better line than lee nelson jhs isnt watching the games
- Upstate_isles


It does not look good that JHS only had 2 points playing with better talent. MDC is not getting top 6 minutes and seems to be much more coachable than JHS.

One last thing... when Leo took that penalty they had Barzall on the PK which I get.. but he we at the Red line looking for a break away when we didn't even have the puck. That was why Slavin was able to walk in like that.. wtf was that all about..

I mean take off once they shoot the puck by all means.. but to be sitting on the red line while they were passing the puck around was just odd. turned it into a 5-on-3.

I assume you're talking about Ho Sang. Trotz was asked about it in the post-game. He said nothing about his being late for practice. What he did say was that he had spoken to Ho Sang a few times about things he needed to correct in his game, but Ho Sang failed to correct those things. Thus, he felt some time in Bridgeport was warranted. He made it sound like he expects him to correct those issues and be back again better than ever.
- JohnScammo


we talked about it on these boards 3 or 4 games ago. Trotz is right.. He was doing some of the things he has struggled with in the past. Obviously Trotz addressed it and it continued. Back to the Bridge to work on it more..

We all wanted accountability.. we got it.

Nailed it. Think that’s the main issue. Ho Sang seems to do what he thinks he should do.

“We need more production than that,” Islanders coach Barry Trotz said. “Some of the details in his game (slipped) say in the last five games. We had a few talks. He didn’t clean it up. He’ll work on it in Bridgeport. Every time they come up, they get better and better.”


I would say this is accurate I mentioned that he seemed to be getting away from what made him look good when he first got called up a couple days ago on here. He seems to always revert back to bad old habits after a few games. Getting comfortable in the nhl means doing what Ho Sang thinks is right. That’s my impression maybe it’s wrong but there almost seems to be arrogance connected to it. That’s my impression and it’s unfortunate because our record with him in the line up is much better points not with standing.

I mean we saw it last night with Barzal trying to beat 3 guys and coughing up the puck which led to a goal. At this young age, pts equate to dollars. All these young kids wanna put up the numbers to get paid. But what they fail to realize is if you play the way the coaches ask, you’ll get rewarded with more ice and PP ice at that.....leading to more pts.

If that is true we will find out soon enough b/c that is not something that would not be reported.

Yeah but when Barzal is scoring at a point per game pace you can take some bad with the good. Ho Sang wasn’t producing.

- niteislander

He was cheating a little which makes sense when you’re down late and trying to get lucky but he actually fell when he tried to get back and that lead to the 5 on 3

I just dont think he is what the majority of this fanbase seems to think he is and that's the next barzal. He has some similar qualities but isnt near the same caliber player

I got news for those fans that think Ho sang is on that level. I’d take Dal Colle right now over Ho sang and his “talent”.

I agree I thing del colle is adapting to the speed of the nhl and is looking much more comfortable out there, should see some goals from him soon. He should replace cluttersuck on the 2nd pp unit and toews should move up to the top unit as well. Similar skill to leddy as far as skating with the puck and i think he would slot in well

I don't think anyone thinks Ho Sang is the next Barzal. He can hopefully be a valuable offensive contributor, but Barzal is a legitimate star in this league.

I actually thought MDC had his best game by far. He would have gotten an assist on the Eberle goal if it wasn't overturned. Was the offsides close? because they never showed the replay on the board. Also great crowd for a tuesday night against the canes. Place was jumping!!
