Its on social media and there are a few on here that know people in isles front office that said it wasnt true as well. Time will tell maybe he will be back up. Personally I'd include him in a deal for a bigger piece if possible and be done with him hes not this great savior that some fans make him out to be

At this point, after seeing how well coached this team is, and how they're over performing, I could care less about Ho Sang. Whatever the reason is with Ho Sang, the isles are playing very sound hockey, even when they lose. If they can get the PP going consistently, they're gonna have a playoff year.

Now if only they could hire the Mitch Korn of the PP's...….cause Scotty Gomez is not the guy long term...
- kindlyrick

No he is not. But since they connected last night, look for it to not change.

I just wanna see it be consistent. You can't have games where you go 0-6, or worse than that have two 5 on 3's and not convert.

The PP is a glaring weakness. The coaching they're getting is compensating for it though. Luckily.
Last nights game was just a good, solid performance all around. From goaltending to the PP, everyone did their job.

The Isles 4th line was the best line for both teams...….nice to see them rewarded for playing that gritty style every night. The PK last night looked sharp.....they were aggressive.

The team as a whole played a very good defensive game. Couple hiccups here and there, but that happens to every team most games. Good solid win against a very good team.
- Isleshockeyman


Another goal for Toews and MDC with the great forecheck to setup that goal. 4th line had a great night and Greiss was very solid.

Or short term for that matter. He’s just not the guy.

Would be nice to include JHS in a deal for Duchene or another 2C. I'm not giving up a lot of Duchene though since he can walk.

Yeah and honestly he just doesn’t fit the kinda guys they’ve brought in. They need a specialist. Not a guy who at one time was good at carrying the puck through the neutral zone with speed.

I know there are reports, real or not about Ho Sang but if we step back and look at him, does he really have any value? I mean he couldn’t/can’t crack a New York Islander roster that was seen as “less desirable” than most rosters. If all he is, is a throw in on a trade, I’d rather just keep him and use him when needed.

Honestly JHS would not be the main piece in a big type trade. JHS could have some value to a team like the Sens because he is young and would be under team control. Isles would have to add more to a deal for a Duchene or other 2C. Isles have other young dmen beside Wilde and Dobson they should have value. Maybe the Isles give up Sorokin?

It's untrue... anyone that has been on here for a while will tell you that when I post something it's accurate. He was sent down b/c of his play. There was no late meeting or anything stupid.

I love the kid's speed and skill set and would hate to see him traded, but if it's packaged with a legit 2C I would be ok with it.

- niteislander

Ok well we will see it just came up again but maybe its because of his history of doing these types of things. Even if it was based soley on his play he stopped doing the simple things that worked and reverted to his selfish crap. Kid seems to think he's the smartest guy in the room and it isnt so

If he gets traded in the next week or 2, we'll have our answer.
- Isleshockeyman


I don't doubt that they might be shopping him. That is the part that usually IB is correct. The other stuff is just nonsense.

the guys who can't seem to grasp Trotz system I am sure are expendable. (Leddy, Ho Sang, Pelech, etc.). If you can get a big piece for any of them or a combination of them I am sure they would pull the trigger. (despite Garth probably losing his mind over it.... YOU ARE TRADING A PLAYER?!?! NOOOOOO!!)

We are too cute on PP. They are like the hoosiers of hockey..,5 passes. Throw it at the net and let the 2 guys in front bang in the rebound.

He is very frustrating.. then when he gets to the bench and the coaches are talking to all the players he is staring into space like he left the iron on at home. Strange kid.

I can see Garth reacting this way. Aho seems to be playing well in Bridge would make an interesting partner for Mayfield on the 3rd pairing. I think Leddy will get more time. Pelech may be running out of chances soon.

Would be a real shame if JHS never figures it out. You cannot teach that speed and skill. You need to play a smart game with Barry and you have to do the little things as well.

Leddy, Ho Sang and Calgary’s 2nd for Anisimov and Gustafsson.

Hawks get back an old friend, get to ditch a contract they don’t like, and score a pick and some youth.

Islanders get a 2C and a LH D with some promising upside.
