Islanders Prospect Ho-Sang: Exclusion From Hockey Canada Camp "Insulting"

Islanders Optimism's picture

The chip on New York Islanders first-round draft pick Joshua Ho-Sang's shoulders keeps getting bigger.

Hockey Canada left Ho-Sang off its summer developmental camp roster, and the 28th-overall selection in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, shockingly, had a few words aimed towards the snubbing.

Why Charles Wang Should Sell The Islanders

It’s not like Charles shook Sinatra’s hand right?

I’ve been reluctant to write about this, but for some odd reason, I feel compelled to do so once again. Andrew Barroway is suing New York Islanders owner Charles Wang for 10 million dollars because of they had a “Hand Shake” agreement that Wang would sell the New York Islanders for over 400 million dollars and then Wang backed away from the deal.  When was Charles ever quoted in saying he was selling the Islanders?

Changes to Isles Talk and other thoughts.

View From Section 317's picture

It has been a long time since I wrote on this page…. Just a lot going on in my life, and it took away from the other things that I like to do (including this).

It was a decent summer in Islander country.  I am so glad that the goaltending situation was fixed.  I really believe that Halak and Johnson are a great tandem, and moved up into the top third in the league in that category, without even playing a game.  True, the defense that will be in front of them are not as good as the Blues and Bruins respectively, but the goaltending will make the defensemen better.  So for that – you have to be a little hopeful.

Getting Grabovski and Kulemin will surely help.  I believe that both of these gentlemen want a little bit of a reclamation to their respective careers, so getting this chance can only help.
