Losers

Josh Ho-Sang

What a way to exit the organization. Things between the Islanders and Ho-Sang have been bubbling ever since they drafted him 28th overall in the 2014 draft. And now he’s gone, to the AHL’s San Antonio Rampage.

It’s not common for NHL teams to send their players to another NHL’s teams AHL affiliate, but it happens. The Islanders decided they needed a clean break from Ho-Sang as possible, so off to San Antonio he goes.

It’s the best-case scenario for the two. Ho-Sang gets to play and the Islanders get to put Ho-Sang in the shop window for everyone to see his value.

With the Ho-Sang’s future clearly elsewhere we’re all left to wonder what could have been.

Anthony Beauvillier

Can we go back to the Anthony Beauvillier from the start of the season? The Islanders forward has been invisible for the past while. This week, Beau registered zero points. In fact, he only has two points over his last ten games.

It’s not been Beau’s week, and the Islanders, desperate for offense, need that to change.

Beau has been a staple for the Isles second line, but his play of late hasn’t warranted a top-six spot. If the Islanders had anyone else in the lineup that could step into his position on the left-wing next to Brock Nelson you better believe that Barry would have taken it.

Luckily for Beau, the Islanders are short of top-six options in their lineup.

Nick Leddy

Nick Leddy has not had a good week for a while now, but this week has been particularly rough. He was on the ice for seven goals against (in all situations) the most on the team from February 23rd to March 2. That’s more than half the goals scored against the Islanders.

Nick Leddy was previously untradable according to Barry Trotz, but going into the 2020 offseason the narrative on his tradeability has to change.
