New York Islanders Three Players That Could Be Traded
Josh Ho-Sang | RW
Josh Ho-Sang should be in the NHL. But Barry Trotz and Lou Lamoriello don’t seem to like Josh Ho-Sang’s game. They recently called him up from Bridgeport after the trade deadline and with two games against the Ottawa Senators and the Isles needing offense, you’d think it was the best time to play him.
But Ho-Sang was a healthy scratch for both games and eventually was sent back to the AHL.
We know what Josh Ho-Sang can do at the NHL level. He has top-six skills with his sublime puck handling, his one-of-a-kind view of the ice, and his ability to find holes in another teams defense.
And he can put up points with 24 points in 53 games played.
Teams were clearly hesitant to take Josh Ho-Sang in the draft, but they might be more willing to take a stab now that they’ve seen what he can do at the NHL level.
Just like Anthony Beauvillier, he’s young, promising, and you can have him for cheap.
Yes, Ho-Sang has played in the NHL, but not more than a full season. With his ELC coming to an end he’s due a new deal. You can expect that new deal won’t reach more than a $2 million AAV.

Think about having a half-point per game (or more) player for $2 million a season. That’s incredible value in a hard cap league. A team looking to open up some cap space and adding quality should be lining up to get Josh Ho-Sang.
